    • Synopsis
    • In June, 2007, a new reality show called 'Tontine' launched.
      Fifteen contestants were chosen and sent to a desert island in the Fiji’s for a 10M $
      prize contest.
      During their journey to the island, radio transmissions from the contestant’s boat
      indicated that the boat had to fight a cyclone in high seas and took on water.
      Two days after the storm, a radio signal helped the authorities to localize them.
      Arrived on zone, the rescue team discovered a wild island with the bodies of all the
      contestants, all dead in strange circumstances.
      Few personal video cameras were recovered from the island, containing 40 hours of
      footage shot by the contestants.
      After 5 years of silence and long negotiations, here is a editing which reveals the
      chronology of events.
