The international breakthrough of acclaimed filmmaker Claire Dennis, Chocolat is set in a remote town in Cameroon during the last days of France s African colonies. There lives a sole white family Marc Dalens, the often-travelling regional administrator; his wife Aimee, who does her best to stave off frustration and boredom with household activities; and their young daughter France, who cultivates a special friendship with the native servant boy Protee. But the familys ordered world is threatened with chaos when a plane full of strangers makes an emergency landing nearby, its arrival unleashing a torrent of simmering resentments, racism and repressed passions.
