January 1966: In a Paris flat police discover the body of Georges Figon, the man who broke the scandal of the Ben Barka affair and undermined Gaullist power. A year earlier, tired of dodgy deals and petty scams, ex-con Figon had gone in search of something big. Through his underworld connections he had got himself hired as producer for a documentary on decolonialisation to be written by Marguerite Duras and directed by Georges Franju.
