A Feature film by Jean-Xavier de Lestrade

Produced by Maha Productions, Ciné@

Release in France : 03/12/2008

    Synopsis

    Julien has a blank stares, one of those stares that people whose lives were one day shattered have. Today the prison doors will shut on his thirteen years of imprisonment. Julien is twenty-eight years old. He is free. Or that's the way it's supposed to be, except society isn't quite ready to give him a second chance so easily.

    But the true adversary is elsewhere: In his head, and in the image of a young woman who he's obsessed by. Emilie is a salesclerk by day, an extroverted nightclub regular by night. Julien constantly observes her, spies on her, and follows her like a shadow, at the risk of endangering his hopes of reintegration.

    Julien sees Emilie who doesn't see him the way he really is, the memory of an unbearable past, blotted from her mind exactly thirteen years ago. A word from him in the street will be enough: Emilie recognizes him, their destinies become but one. For the second and perhaps the last time.
