A film by Hans W. Stachowiak, based on a novel by Jeanne Tomasini
 
Synopsis
By describing Corsica, her country of origin, she imagined the story of a local, very ordinary boy whose foolhardiness and fantasy spirit makes him live extraordinary adventures.
The story is situated in a natural environment and takes place in a very short timeframe in 1870, not only a period of important social and political changes, but also the time of the industrial revolution. It was particularly the end of commercial, wooden sailing ships. Most of the small shipbuilders established along the east coast of the island are going to die. It s the agony of the handicraft that nothing is going to replace.
The emigration of the Corsican people to the mainland or to Algeria-newly conquered-has already started. Corsica is about getting poor, the population of the villages old.
This is what Marc Sebastiani will discover during his voyage throughout his island, together with its surprising beauty.
