Synopsis

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

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

A dark page in the history of Monaco during which the roots of its current status as a tax haven are born.
