    • Synopsis
    • An exhausted militant wants to take a break from the incessant
      frenzy surrounding him. His country’s dictatorship
      is on its last legs and chaos reigns. His wife Sylvie leaves
      their country for France. She writes about the new democracy
      struggling to be born back home. His daughter Joyce
      must hide out in the deserted childhood home in the solitude
      and infinity of the Black Beach. Several adversaries – the
      militia of a hazy regime in his native land and the Paris police
      – wage a strange game of chess in which he is the pawn.
      Threats abound and he’s haunted by his past, his fears, dead
      friends. He has three allies: his wife, his daughter, and an old
      girlfriend from his fighting days. After our hero undergoes a
      fake execution, he no longer knows what awaits him.
