Haiti, early 1960s. Sarah is eight. In a ghost town, she lives threatened by Janvier, head of the Tontons Macoutes, who prowls ready to strike at random. Hunkered down in the family attic, she invents games and rituals befitting her age. But she witnesses an incredibly violent scene which would force her parents to flee the country. She is put in the hands of her loving grandmother, Camille Desroullière. Today an adult, Sarah has trouble bringing back her memories. “It’s just a bad dream, my darling, just a bad dream”, her grandmother kept telling her. Haiti, early 1960s. Sarah is eight.
