December 16, 2001: Madagascar. One of the world’s poorest countries falls into chaos.
The roots of this crisis are two men fighting to control disputed electoral results: Didier Ratsiraka, the incumbent president, and his foe, Marc Ravalomanana, the presidential challenger.  For seven months one of the poorest countries in the world is asphyxiated by this turmoil: barricades are set up, tortures take place, and the crisis escalates into a true civil war.

In late June the political calamity ends with the official recognition of Marc Ravalomanana by the United States. Ratsiraka flees the country. Meanwhile, these two men have plunged the country into an unimaginable humanitarian, political and economic catastrophe. The consequences for the Malagasy people are still immeasurable.
