For years Conrad Lang has been living off the Senn family; at first a childhood playmate of Thomas, later caretaker for the family’s summer home in Biarritz. The family used him as they felt fit and Conrad seemed content with the arrangement.But as his health slowly worsens, a strange friendship grows between him and Simone, the young wife of the family heir, as she listens to Conrad’s memories from his early childhood and notices that they somehow don’t quite stick to the family version. Conrad’s stories provoke such anguish in Elvira, the family’s matriarch, as if this harmless old fool somehow had the means of destroying her.Their friendship will soon lead Simone to stand up for Conrad and front an eerie Elvira, who could be far more dangerous than she appears.
