What do Quentin Tarantino, Bill Gates, Sam Raimi, Alexander Astier and teenage Japanese comic book fans have in common? They are all members of the great international geek community. Diving into the universe of these sci-fi maniacs makes us discover their love for worlds filled with super-heroes, zombies, droids and hobbits. Numbers of geeks tell us their story, the evolution of their culture and show real knowledge of the world, far from the regressive and anti-social cliché. Portrait of a multimedia generation.

A quiet island, lost in the pacific ocean. Nothing worth of interest, until the day a stroke of luck, phosphate, provided by the island's coral core, led the country to incredible heights : in 1975, it became the second richest country per inhabitant in the world after Saudi Arabia... Only to plunge into ruins a few years later.

The annual and almost ritual opening of the new Michelin guide is like staring at a beautiful sea view. But the apparent tranquillity of the surface hides an uprising chef generation. The "Nouvelle Cuisine" is on its way to take control!
Some of these rising chefs are already stars of the famous red book, like Thierry Marx and Anne-Sophie Pic, and so many others, inspired by molecular gastronomy and federated by their association, carry with them the renewed flame of French cuisine. The "Nouvelle cuisine" keeps surprising by its playful, conceptual and free-spirited attitude!

The exponential increase of the world population and the growing human activity it generates, especially with the boom of transport and exchanges of all sorts, is creating a global ecological disturbance.
In one generation the issue of invasive species has become crucial. After the destruction of natural habitat, they have become the second major biodiversity threat. It is a problem as preoccupying as global warming! With the slight difference that no one seems to care.
An invasive species is a vegetal or animal species that wildly spreads when outside its natural environment, to the extent of threatening and irrevocably modifying the ecosystems it conquers.
Our documentary will for the first time explore the problem, starting with the French territory (itself threatened by 37 different types of vertebrate animals) to open on a worldwide consideration the public needs to be aware of.
