SYNOPSIS

Lisa and Simon are inseparable. They have been passionate about each other since they were teenagers. A tragedy occurs, provoked by Simon's criminal activities. He is in danger and flees. Without Lisa. She waits in vain for news from him. Three years later, she is married to Leo when their paths cross again on an island in the Indian Ocean.

DIRECTOR'S STATEMENT

Lisa and Simon are young, beautiful and in love. It’s almost too good to be true. But then death crosses their path, destroying their idyll. It’s an accident but Simon refuses to call emergency services. Like Conrad’s Lord Jim, Simon runs to the ends of the Earth, hoping to exorcise his guilt. But it follows him, hounding and devouring him, preventing him from leading a normal life. Three years later, he accidentally runs into Lisa again in the Indian Ocean: he is working at the hotel where she has come to stay with her very wealthy husband, Léo Redler. Lisa is the only one in the end who manages to escape the clutches of this dark fable.
