Movie Info

Beginning with the death of brutal Haitian dictator President François "Papa Doc" Duvalier, director John L'Ecuyer's adaptation of Dany Laferrière's controversial novel contrasts a young boys sexual awakening with the political turmoil that's destabilizing his country. Fifteen year old Fanfan is captivated by the poetry of Magloire Saint-Aude, and smitten with the prostitutes who dwell in gorgeous Miki's brothel. The more Fanfan's shady friend Gégé discusses his sexual conquests, the greater Fanfan's interest in the seamier side of his city grows. One day, Gégé is leading Fanfan on a tour of the ghetto when the later incurs the wrath of a feared Tonton Macoute boss. Taking flight, terrified Fanfan sees the situation as a blessing in disguise when he's granted sanctuary in the cathouse that's been the object of his obsession for months.
