About film:

Loosely inspired by real events that occurred in the village of Pont-Saint-Esprit and the now-known CIA operations during the Cold War, this film follows Marie Lefevre, a young French journalist living in the United States, who as a young girl experienced her father’s tragic suicide before her eyes, an event that haunts her as she grapples to understand it. As she delves into the reasons behind this trauma, her personal story intertwines with that of the United States, unraveling one of the greatest state scandals of the 20th century. Uncovering a web of deceit and government manipulation, she exposes sinister experiments involving the testing of drugs on humans in a bid to gain an advantage during the Cold War, shedding light on a dark chapter of history. As Marie’s investigation progresses, she uncovers the shocking events that transpired in the village, where during the “night of the apocalypse,” everyone descended into madness, further unraveling the disturbing truths hidden beneath the surface.
