One day while fetching water from the river Mèmène falls into the water and meets a siren named Simbi who predicts that she will give birth to a son. Simbi offers her a diamond with a magical power in order to leave for Martinique, on the condition that her son will join her in HAITI, when he is ten years old …
Years pass and on the day of the tenth birthday of her son, Zebedee, Mèmène falls gravely ill. Zebedee then searches Simbi to save his mother. Before arriving at the pearl of the West Indies, the island of Simbi, Zébédé will make fabulous encounters: iguana comrade, mantu comrade, sisserou comrade … and will discover beautiful landscapes.
