le gang des antillais (gang of the antilles)

le gang des antillais (gang of the antilles)

In the 1970s, Martiniquans were lured to mainland France with the promise of opportunities, but found only menial jobs and rampant racism. Jimmy tries to make an honest living, with help from the various women in his life. But he falls in with a motley crew of fellow Caribbean men, some motivated by money, others by the desire for revenge and revolution. Jimmy wants to settle down with his daughter and girlfriend — but first he must carry out one final, daring heist with the gang. The film is based on a true story.
