New Caledonia, today. Dani has gone missing. Where could he be? What happened to him? Dani is Pierre’s best friend and Pierre is very worried. The two of them were already inseparable in the 1960s. They are rock fans and had set up a band together, along with Jojo, Stanilas and Honoré: the Hippy Shakes! Their band is a unique adventure that has welded them together forever despite their strong personalities and their differences, and despite their sometimes complicated family situations.
This story navigates between two epochs, that of the sixties and that of the 2010s and alternates between the characters as teens and as grown-ups.
