Patrick is a diligent but limited man. In the West Indies he is a brilliant pupil, who at the age of ten, is sent by his mother to pursue his studies in France. Thirty years later, he becomes a proud and reputable historian. Learning that his mother is at death’s door, he rushes to her side in Martinique during the carnival season. He spends three days with his irrepressible friend Zamba, and is swept up in a whirlwind of madness, emotion and humour. This is a journey of initiation, set to the rhythm, ambiance and colour of carnival.
