Against the backdrop of poverty, fear and the brutal dictatorship of Haiti in 1971, 'On the Verge of a Fever' ('Le goÃ»t des jeunes filles') is about Fanfan, a 15-year-old boy who just wants to experience life for himself with his streetwise friend GÃ©gÃ©. Having lived a somewhat sheltered life with his protective mother, Fanfan experiences a bizarrely terrifying incident involving a Tonton-Macoute. As a result, he decides to hide out at his beautiful neighbor's house for the weekend. There, he is trapped between his fear of being caught and the fulfilling of his deepest fantasy.
