Sebastian’s son lies in a coma following a road accident. Guilty and grief-stricken, Sebastian refuses to agree to his ex-wife’s wishes and sign the papers that will allow their son to die peacefully.

During the night shift in the children’s psychiatric hospital where Sebastian works, a little girl is admitted on to the ward. Sebastian’s sanity begins to unravel, as a terrifying chain of events surrounding the girl brings him face to face with his son.

The film stars Hervé Sogne and Brigitte Urhausen. Cinematography is by Nikos Welter.
