A true family film The third installment of Marcel Pagnol's trilogy about wandering sailor Marius, his lady love Fanny, and their child Cesario. When Marius deserted the pregnant Fanny to answer the call of the sea, she married the older Panisse, whom she came to love. Panisse raised Cesario as if the boy was his own, never revealing the truth about his real father. When Panisse dies, Cesario finally learns about his real father. He then embarks on a quest to confront Marius, an act that leads to reunions, recriminations, and reconciliations.
