A friendship is tested by love and magic in this beautiful
retelling of a traditional tale from the French West
On the lush tropical island of Martinique live Clement and
Hippolyte, two inseparable friends. When Clement falls in love with
the beautiful Pauline, Hippolyte agrees to join his best friend on
his journey to propose marriage. But when Pauline accepts Clement's
proposal, it enrages her uncle Monsieur Zabocat-reputed to be a
quimboiseur, a wizard. To prevent the wedding, the old
wizard lures Hippolyte into a deadly trap, forcing him to choose
between his friend's safety and his own.
