Abstract

Based on revelations of the daughter of Barthélémy Guérin, a Corsican mobster living in Marseille, this film gives a better understanding of how Marseilles became the centre of cocaine trade in the early 70s. At the time, New York gangsters put all their faith in «chemists» from Marseille… Barthélémy Guerin‘s daughter tells us how her father always refused to take drugs and how her uncle Antoine, a genuine godfather, had no other option than accepting this traffic.
