Antilles, a colony of Martinique, in the 1930s. André Aliker, a simple communist activist, takes over production of the pamphlet put out by his party, despite the fear this provokes among his nearest and dearest. Because of his extraordinary intuition, Aliker understands the impact that this means of expression can have, and he quickly transforms Justice, a minor activist paper, into a real newspaper, applying investigative methods and ethics worthy of the modern press. In this colonial, hierarchical and self-contained world, subjected to the almighty power of the factory owners and planters, this new journalism has the effect of cyclone. Aliker directly attacks the most powerful of the factory owners: The Dragon. The latter has the reputation of destroying everything and everyone who interferes with his interests. But André Aliker, confronting his own fear, defying his own death, simply with the notion of journalism that he holds dear, relentlessly pursues his uncompromising concern for information and truth - and freedom - to the very end.
