In the early 1970s, at a French army base in Madagascar, soldiers and their families are living through the last hours of colonialism.

Robin Campillo co-wrote and edited several of Laurent Cantet's films, including Entre les murs (The Class), which won the Palme d'Or in 2008 and the César for Best Adaptation. In 2004 he directed his first feature film, Les Revenants (They Came Back), which inspired the series The Returned for Canal +. His next film Eastern Boys was awarded the Orrizzonti prize in Venice in 2013. His third film, 120 battements par minute (120 BPM), won the Grand Prix du Jury at Cannes in 2017, as well as the Césars for Best Film and Best Original Screenplay. The film was sold in over 40 countries worldwide. His new film, L'Île rouge (Red Island), was released in cinemas last May.
