The story could be told from the point of view of the Parrot, an aggravating winged creature who saw his mistress, old Madame Catherine, kick the bucket by a forceful effort and buried on the sly by Eric the mechanic.
The story could also be told by stopping the trains that cross this small town not far from the border. Passenger cars scoured by nomadic controllers, lost like Sophie; cars unloading their lot of passengers, like the too-seductive Gerard who, in fact, is only passing through. It could also be understood through the bottles served by Yann the cafe barman... A sinister, simple and very tangled story.
