A Village haunted by the past, two people haunted by the present.
Haute Vienne, France, 1944, and the retreating Nazis leave a trail of horror and destruction in their wake. 75 years later when Michelle's estranged Great Aunt leaves her a cottage in a quiet French village, she finds her own experience of loss and heartache reflected in the tragic history of Argemourt.
Young Parisian student, Paul, is living in a city still reeling after a series of terrorist attacks. The aftermath is inescapable, breeding suspicion and anger, even in his own family. Increasingly, Paul finds himself retreating into the past, but discovers it is a place of horror, as well as escape.
When, through twists of fate, the two of them meet in the village of Argemourt; the ghosts of past and present are awakened. Can Michelle and Paul find a way to help the dead rest; and themselves live and love; in a world that never seems to learn the lessons of history?
