DAWN COMPANION

Synopsis

June 1940, an old general of french army, the heart tight, announces to France that it has to stop the fighting. The country capitulates and bursts into the night of occupation. But a few thousand of men and women, fighters of expectation, “free France” partisans who refused to surrender. For recall those 18 portraits, I thought to a route, a travel in photographies albums of each one.
