a film by Daniel Coche, 49'A man in the countryside, accompanied by his valet and his linen maid. Mister is ill, Mister travels, Mister is scared. Nothing can be done. Mister tries to stimulate himself, to react, but his will seems to collide with the strength of madness. Delirium begins.

It’s the life of a man racked by anguish and fear of others. The film is a cruel and fantastic tale and depicts a lonely man haunted by death, suicide and madness: "when the tenant inside, black, reptile voracious takes over".
