Bouloc, France. In a small village during an extremely hot summer, eighteen-year-old Joshua wanders around aimlessly. It is the memories of his best friend Silvain's suicide that guide him and that he reads in the walls of the village houses. Joshua does not want to continue living either. He already belongs to the world of the dead, but still has to take care of his brother before he can cross over completely. He must find a family for him. His brother ought to be saved, even without him. Joshua commences his search.
