As night draws in Antoine stops off at yet another bar but returns to the car to find Helene missing. Panic-stricken, he embarks on a desperate search, only to find events spiralling far beyond his control with horrifying consequences...
Exciting, raw and tough crime film.

Realistic and extremely gripping thriller (from a Simenon story) about an unravelling alcoholic, who is losing his professional, unhappy wife. The film follows their tortuous weekend car journey. And her sudden, mysterious disappearance. Packed with subtle, unexpected twists and a killer payoff.
