On the French Polynesian island of Tahiti, the High Commissioner of the Republic and French government official De Roller (Benoît Magimel) is a calculating man with flawless manners who is able to navigate between the high-end "establishment" and the shady venues where he mingles with the locals. But now he faces a persistent rumor: the sighting of a submarine whose ghostly presence could herald the return of French nuclear testing.
