Colony : The year is 1928. Sabir - petty criminal, drifter, war veteran - is on a prison ship, bound for a notorious penal settlement in the French tropics. On his arrival, he is sent to a work camp deep in the South American rain forest. There, he wins the confidence of the camp's idealistic commandant, who sets him the task of carving a landscaped garden out of the surrounding wilderness. At the same time, Sabir plans his getaway with a band of like-minded convicts, through the jungle and across the ocean on a stolen boat. His only hope, he realizes, is to become someone else entirely. To escape into a different dream . . .
