S, a young soldier in the Tunisian army, is disgusted by the brutality of their assignments. Given leave to attend his mother’s funeral, he does not return the front. He is hunted as a deserter and flees into the mountains. Years later, a young woman, F, learns she is pregnant and leaves her wealthy husband to disappear into the woods. She falls under S’s spell…

A surreal fable with nods to Stanley Kubrick.
