Following the disappearance of the glamorous and secretive Evelyne Ducat (Valeria Bruni Tedeschi), the lives of five people inextricably linked to Evelyne are brought together to devastating effect as the local police investigate the case. Featuring a sophisticated multi-pronged narrative structure, writer-director Dominik Moll’s murder mystery gradually reveals the secret connections between a lonely farmer, an unfaithful husband and wife, a lovelorn waitress and an African internet scam artist, exposing a world of greed, lust, betrayal, and loneliness, from isolated French mountain villages to the bustling streets of Abidjan.

Audacious, witty, and absorbing mystery thriller… with a gamey touch of the macabre.”
