Synopsis

On October 15, 1917, Mata Hari is executed at the Ch√Ęteau de Vincennes. Ironically, her lovers have been her military judges. She may have claimed her innocence, but no one listened. Shiva's ex-dancer has been accused of conspiring with the enemy.

Why was this flamboyant personality, a darling of the Belle Epoque, of interest to the intelligence services? Working for Germany, did Mata Hari really betray France in times of war or was she a scapegoat for an era of paranoia and censorship?

Mata Hari, a very independent woman, paid her extravagance and reprehensible affairs with her life.
