Nowadays in Mana, Guyana, the nun Anne Marie Javouhey (1779-1851) is still revered. People of Mana, descendants of the freed, are grateful to the nun for having employed, educated and baptized their forefathers, who acquired freedom, as early as 1838, ten years before the abolition of slavery. This film offers a new vision of this unique adventure in the French colonial history.
