Synopsis

In 1945, Marseilles is unlike any other place. The city is experiencing the post-war period in a climate of passion and exacerbated conflicts.

The power struggles oppose the communists close to Moscow, the AMGOT (Allied Military Government of Occupied Territories), which includes the representatives of General de Gaulle, and the socialists led by a rising personality: Gaston Deferre.
