Synopsis

Behind the postcard image of the Principality of Monaco lies a dark and little-known history of economic and political collaboration with Nazi Germany.

A dark page in the history of the Rock during which the roots of its current status as a coveted hidden tax heaven were born...

Monaco, behind its neutrality, becomes a center of the black market and asserts itself as an occult financial center that the Nazis will use extensively thanks to the complicity of Émile Roblot, a high ranking French civil servant, head of the Monegasque government.
