Paris, 1966. The police find the corpse of Georges Figon, the man who uncovered the scandalous "Ben Barka's Case" and shacked the foundations of the Gaullist power.
Years before, Figon, tired of shady business and deplorable cons, has tried to deliver a decisive (fatal) blow producing a documentary film about the decolonization written by Marguerite Duras and directed by Georges Franju, with the help as a historic consultant of the Moroccan famous opponent Mehdi Ben Barka. But this cinematographic project is a trap...

Co-production between France and Spain.
