Synopsis

In 1975, Habib Bourguiba, the Tunisian head of state and father of the nation, is appointed "president for life". This date marks the beginning of a decline that would last for a decade.

While the country is undergoing major upheavals, Bourguiba's entourage fight mercilessly for his succession.

Only a parricide will get the better of the "Supreme Fighter" and put an end to 30 years of absolute power.
