Pierre is a lonely, intensely quiet 40-something, living with his sick father. Haunted by childhood memories of his dead mother, Pierre's only respite from his solitary existence lies in killing innocent strangers. When Pierre meets Laure, his murderous inclinations subside, but not for long. The tension between his tender, burgeoning romance and his homicidal urges drives Pierre to the brink.
