In 1920s French-controlled Algeria, Kaci is in the frame for the brutal murder of his French boss. He is faced with a stark choice: win freedom by naming the killer and thus condemning him to the guillotine, or keep quiet and face a never-ending sentence in the infamous Devilís Island penal colony? Kaci, just 20 years old, must choose between an eternity of guilt and shame or a lifetime of physical suffering and mental anguish.
With all the drama of The Shawshank Redemption and Papillon, this is the astonishing account of one manís experience of a hell on earth that few of us could ever hope to survive.
Based on a true story.
