Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
On the Caribbean island of Guadeloupe, which was a French territory at the time of this movie, Coco, a simple islander, is tricked into running for political office in the sure expectation that he will not rock the boat when he loses, after having divided the vote among the poor. Though the charming Coco is popular among his fellow poor folks, he is unlikely to suddenly grow political and start agitating for rights. Unfortunately for the Monbin family, which has arranged all this, Coco is too good a student of his new role.
