In 1991, a peaceful community has gathered from all over the European continent to take part in an unprecedented ecological adventure in Northern Europe. A collective known as Ecoovie offers them to reinvent their occidental way of life, by adopting the customs of a Native American tribe known as the Mi’kmaq. Their leader/Guru, Pierre Maltais, makes them live as close as possible to Mother Nature, pushing them to gradually give up the comfort they are used to. To leave behind the social conceptions they were used to. To abandon the independence they once enjoyed. Slowly, all of them fall under the spell of this guru.
The man has a troubled past—he is the so-called heir of the Mi’kmaq tribe, a former CIA agent, an arms dealer in Libya, a French representative at the United Nations…Chased out of the forests, banished from the cities, expelled from Sweden to Finland, deprived by their leader of the most elementary comforts, the living conditions of the most faithful adepts are dramatically deteriorating as weeks go by.
