Synopsis by Sandra Brennan
A stranger steps into the midst of a tumultuous French family when he visits a tiny fishing village. The familial dysfunction began shortly after the patriarch, once an upstanding, respected fisherman, became addicted to alcohol. His sexually frustrated wife retaliated by becoming promiscuous. Their poor daughter and mentally retarded son both pay terrible prices for the behavior of their self-destructive parents. Tragedy follows when the son catches the stranger making love to his mother on the beach.
