On July 14th, 1980, Siréna Pérole alias Sissy, 27 years old, is discovered dead at home. It seems she had a bad fall. Her neighborhood receives the news with mixed feelings. in spite of a torrential rain, a huge crowd comes to her funeral. Called the Siren — due to her name and her captivating charm — she was a phenomenon: men admired her, women envied her. They were all impressed by her personality! Time goes on and the beautiful Sirena still haunts the minds. This is the case of her son, Gabriel, orphaned at the age of two and raised by Léonne, the sister of Siréna. One question remains: who was really Siréna?

Gisèle Pineau paints with mastery the singular destiny of a strong woman, through an incredible family saga. In a colourful world, full of odours and perfumes, among frangipani, white heliotropes, jasmine and other islands scents…
