From his difficult childhood in Poland to his adolescence under the sun in Nice to his exploits as a pilot during World War II… Romain Gary lived an extraordinary life with adventure, passion and mystery. Yet he owed this determination to live a thousand lives, to become a great man and famous writer, to his mother Nina. But her boundless maternal love would also be his burden to bear for life.
