Behind the nudity of this sculptural "Ebony Venus" Freda Joséphine Mac Donald was a committed artist, a convinced militant and the mother of a multicultural family. With the passing years she fought for numerous causes, first glory, then black and oppressed people. This film is the intimate portrait of a mixed blood African American woman, a less known side of Joséphine Baker. A woman born in the USA, one of the precursors of a political and democratic change.
