40-year-old Jean, an actor, is between jobs. He unsuccessfully tries to get auditions. His advisor at the unemployment office offers him a rather strange job: to stand in for a cadavre in crime scene reconstructions. His obsession for details impresses the investigations and allows Jean to return to center stage in a delicate affair in Megève ski resort, out of season, after a series of murders.
