    • Synopsis
    • In a small village in the West Indies, Siméon, a music teacher and Isidore, his star disciple, a mechanic by necessity and guitarist by passion, shared the same ambition, an impossible dream — to put their island on the world’s music map with Zouk music. Orélie, Isidore’s ten year old daughter helps him in his endeavours, by bringing Simeon, back to life, after he fell from his tree, trying to get too close to the full moon.
