Royal Bonbon

A Feature film by Charles Najman

Produced by Les Films du Requin

Release in France : 07/05/2003

    Synopsis

    A destitute man wanders the streets of Cap Haïtien, dreaming about his imaginary kingdom. He thinks he’s King Christophe, the New World’s first ruler, a former slave who went on to liberate Haiti in 1804.
    Chased out of the city, King Chacha – as he is known – takes refuge in the grandiose ruins of the Sans Souci castle. He is accompanied by Thimothée, a young street urchin who he has taken under his wing.
    The inhabitants of a neighboring village, who’ve been waiting for the sovereign’s return for many years, are caught up in his folly.
    Within a few days, the kingdom springs to life again. The poverty-stricken populace revels in the pomp and splendor of a tinsel court. But all too soon, King Chacha proves to be an implacable tyrant.
    Thimothée, repulsed by his protector’s transformation, plots his downfall.
