Synopsis: 1944-1945... The liberation of Italy, Provence, The Alps, the Rhone Valley, the Vosges and Alsace marked vital stages in the Allied victory... And in the place that France was able to take among the Allies following the Armistice. This victorious and bloody march in Germany was carried out by the first French Army, recruited in Africa to sidestep the German occupiers and the officials of the Vichy regime: 200,000 men, including 130,000 ¡°natives¡± comprising 110,000 North Africans and 20,000 Black Africans... The rest of the force was made up of French North Africans, for two-thirds, and of young Frenchmen who had fled the Occupation. The film tells the forgotten story of the so called ¡°native¡± soldiers through the epic experiences of four among them, ABDELKADER, SAID, MESSAOUD and YASSIR (the goumier) are light infantrymen. Renowned for their endurance, their feel for the terrain and their courage under fire, they are sent to the front lines... Each one of them pursues a goal throughout this journey across France that they liberate, weapons in hand... YASSIR has enlisted for the booty that he aims to plunder. MESSAOUD , surprised by their welcome in France, wants to marry a French woman and settle there to flee the racial discrimination of Algeria. SAID, a Moroccan pauper, hopes to find a family in the French army. And ABDELKADER fights for freedom and equality within the heart of the army, hoping that France will show her gratitude to the colonized people of Algeria once the war is over.
