    • Synopsis
    • François, a young doctor, moves from Paris to Beauval, a newly developed town set amongst thick woods and hilly fields. His arrival in this place of pent-up needs and repressed desires awakens the fantasies of a clique of youths, which escalates into rival games over his person. The suspicion that he might be to blame for the mysterious death of a young girl on a country road draws François deeper and deeper into the eerie social network of the community.
