Marco's left town for the countryside. He's left his psychologist because he feels he's doing better. He's quit his job as a reporter because he's had enough of photographing corpses. He gets himself a little cottage in the heart of rural France, where he lives with his cat, Adolf. He throws out all his work, and cuts ties with his employer. That night, he has his first panic attack. It's not long before he meets the lovely Emilie, and also the wise and good-natured old man who lives in the cottage just across the way... but who, it turns out, isn't exactly what he seems...
