Tahiti, French Polynesia. Between the runway of the International airport and a small hill lies a district called the Flamboyant. Over there, they say «district» to avoid saying «shantytown». Here we can see another side to contemporary colonialism after thirty years of nuclear tests in Polynesia. By confronting the Ma’ohi spirit with its history of nuclear tests and its fractured existence, the film shows the vital impetus of a people trying not to forget who they are and who, silently, are seeking the path of independence.
