    As a young servant in the town of Itsandra in the Comoros, Gaillard grows up under the protection of two parental figures: her master, who teaches her the Koran, and her adoptive mother, who tells her legends inherited from her slave ancestors from across the sea. One day, in Ahmad's wood, Gaillard meets Halima, a well-born girl who is trying to escape a forced marriage. They become friends, so much so that before returning to submit to her father's will, Halima entrusts Gaillard with a small object that she must keep without ever showing it. Ten years later, when Gaillard has undergone a terrible mutilation, the destinies of the young women cross again.

    In an imaginary world populated by djinns and magical objects that defy time and space, between dream and reality, the two friends set off in search of who they really are, determined to win their freedom.
