“The scene is set at Nouméa’s courthouse in the year 1931 where Jean SENECHAL is on trial. A former convict, the prisoner faces the charge of murdering his childhood friend Théophile MAURAS, who came to New Caledonia as a soldier. The tragic event took place a few months earlier in La Foa at a dance held to celebrate a wedding.
Various witnesses are called to the box to give their accounts of the lives of the two friends, evoked in a series of tableaux vivants: the wedding, the Téremba penitentiary, the escape...
And the final verdict will be delivered by the spectators, who are then treated to a spectacular firework display! ”
