SYNOPSIS
Haiti, 1971. Fanfan, a young fifteen-year-old boy who has been overprotected by his mother, would like to get out and experience a bit of the world. Unbeknownst to his mother, he decides to leave the house and go downtown with his friend, Gégé, a delinquent. After an incident involving a Tonton-Macoute, Fanfan seeks refuge at Miki’s house, his beautiful prostitute neighbour. All weekend long, Fanfan is torn between his fear of being arrested, the desire to cross the street and comfort his mother, and the joy of finally discovering the world of Miki and her beautiful friends. With poverty and the fear inflicted by a ruthless dictatorial regime as a backdrop, Fanfan tells us his story.
