Indochina: 1930. Alongside her father Emile, Eliane Devries determinedly runs a rubber plantation. The only emotional attachment she has is to her adopted daughter Camille, an orphaned Annamite princess. Their existence is turned upside down upon meeting Jean-Baptiste, a young French naval officer with whom both Eliane and then Camille fall in love. Protected by her friend Guy Asselin, the head of the French security services, Eliane is able to face another worrying element: the rise of native nationalism and the first attacks mounted against the French. Although Eliane becomes detached from Jean-Baptiste, Camille still loves him despite her arranged marriage to her cousin Tanh. She flees the colonists and crosses the whole country, heading north, witnessing the misfortunes of her people under colonial oppression, and finally reaches Dragon Islet in Hạ Long Bay where Jean-Baptiste has been transferred. What will be the lovers’ fate?
