    • Synopsis
    • David is a high school teacher and father of two. He is suspected of a murder which took place while he was holidaying in the Alps with some friends. The inquiry brings to light unexpected facts: the seemingly impeccable David was in fact leading a double life with a lover in Poland and gambling debts which he was unable to pay back. This information distresses David’s close friends some of whom begin to question his innocence. David claims to have seen another man, bearing an uncanny resemblance to him, on the evening of the murder but his friends have doubts about this alibi. They even begin to wonder whether David could have used this convenient “double” to manipulate the inquiry and set up the murder scenario. As the trial begins, David’s close circle has split into two irreconcilable sides.
