Enter a bygone world: Mauritius, 1930s to 1950s.
Where the lives of five individuals intersect across sociocultural divides …


There’s Neel, the entrepreneurial son of an indentured labourer, driven to escape poverty; Camille, a girl coming of age in a conservative family devoted to Confucian values; Ai, a new immigrant seeking refuge and a sense of belonging; Marilou, the fragile ingénue; and Pierre, the debauched heir engaging in a side hustle of drug trafficking.

Five unlikely individuals impacted by ambition and betrayal. Their lives, like seeds, were sown into the Mauritian soil. Some thrived. Some faltered. Their stories intertwined together against the backdrop of a society rich in diversity on a tucked away tropical paradise.
