By Arnaud Malherbe


Sev­en-year-old Jules and his moth­er Chloé land in desert­ed French coun­try­side. To start a new life, far from a painful past, she has accept­ed to take over the vil­lage school. But the appar­ent­ly qui­et com­mu­ni­ty is con­sumed by the unex­plained dis­ap­pear­ance of a lit­tle boy months ago. Math­ieu, the town doc­tor, is not insen­si­ble to the newcomer’s charm. As he becomes clos­er to Chloé, her son Jules grows increas­ing­ly anx­ious. He knows it, he can feel it: Math­ieu is the beast, that now wants to devour him and take his moth­er away.
