Once upon a time… there was a young girl whose kindness was matched only by her beauty. She lived in the Mortenol district of Pointe-à-Pitre with her mother. She had a strong bond with her grandmother who lived far from the city, in the remote depths of Abymes. As she gets ready to parade in the Carnival, adorned with a red satin riding hood, Rèd receives a call from her grandmother, who insists on giving her a magical object before her first parade. Night is about to fall, the road to the remote depths is long, and Pointe-à-Pitre is full of dangers. However, Rèd sets off without delay…
