As French bomber crews prepare an air raid from a base in England, we learn the story of Matrac, a French journalist who opposed the Munich Pact. Framed for murder and sent to Devil's Island, he and four others escape. They are on a ship bound for Marseilles when France surrenders and fascist sympathizer Major Duval tries to seize the ship for Vichy. Written by

When describing French Guiana to another escapee, the construction by inmates of Route Zero (the road to nowhere) in the jungle is shown with an escape attempt, where the escaping inmate is shot by a guard and left in the swamp. Immediately, an broad-snouted alligator is shown swimming toward the hapless victim who was just shot. However, there are no alligators in French Guiana, or anywhere else in South America for that matter. Alligators only exist in the southeast mainland coastal region of the USA and along the Yangtze River in China, and are easily distinguishable from crocodiles by their broad snout (whereas crocodiles have long narrow tapered snouts). The species more likely to be found in French Guiana was the caiman, a smaller relative of the American Crocodile. See more
