Wherever his nomadism takes him, the narrator shares language, traditions and daily life with the people. He revises on the ground, thanks to the campaign notebooks of his paternal grandfather, the emergence of the State of Lebanon following the dismemberment of the Ottoman Empire; puts his steps in those of his father within the Corps franc Pommiès in resistance, reconquest of the territory and on the march to deliver Berlin; lived through the events of Algeria with his parents in the Sahara; observed the independence of African countries, the collapse of the communist bloc, interventionism, and the resurgence of nationalism; observed the revival of religion in France and in Black Africa, and the worldwide expansion of communitarianism; and experienced territorial conflicts. He witnessed the profound technological changes that introduced imbalances on a global and individual scale.
Accompanied by his multiple personalities, each with a specific ability, a young boy will change his identity and seek revenge on those who have destroyed his life. His cunning methods can be summed up in one word: trickery.

In an Algerian village in the 1950s, men enforce a moral order that includes punishment for their sexual crimes and the assassination of women who have soiled the family honor. Wassila, a young girl raped by her father, has no other resource than to disappear when she discovers she is pregnant. Feryel, her young mute cousin, accompanies her in her flight.
The Zenatis, a wealthy family close to the colonists, live in Heliopolis, a colonial village built on fertile land in the east. Mokdad Zenati raises his children Mahfoud and Nedjma between Muslim and Western values, dreaming of seeing them play their part in a "French Algeria" in which he believes. But faced with a France brought to its knees by Germany during the Second World War, the Algerians start fighting again for their rights and even dream of freedom. The colonists see a fatal threat. Algeria was then in turmoil and the Zenatis experienced tensions and differences that tested the unity of the family. On May 8, 1945, while the rest of the world celebrated the end of the war, France made the Algerians pay for their dream of independence. The Zenatis were not exempt.
