Through the story of Christophe, a 58-year-old Afro-Vietnamese man, the film reveals the little known history of African
colonial soldiers enlisted to fight for the French in Indochina. Christophe was one of seven Afro-Vietnamese orphans
adopted by one of those soldiers when he returned to Benin after the war. The film explores the long lasting impact of
bringing together two populations who previously had no ties and sheds light on a frequent practice within colonial history,
that of using one colonized people to repress the independence claims of another colonized people.
