At 20,000 kilometers, Wallis-and-Futuna are the most remote French lands from the metropolis, the most atypical, no doubt also.
There, religion and customary law are the two pillars of the last kingdoms of the Republic.
Barely larger than inner Paris, this territory which offers very little prospect of the future, is emptying its youth.
Wallisians and Futunians go into exile in mainland France to join the army, study or break into sport, taking the risk of seeing their identity diluted in the France of the antipodes.
Articulated around crossed portraits, this film tells about the anchoring of an unknown, discreet diaspora, which lives the paradox of an exile in its own country.
