Despondent, guilt-racked Martin sits in the middle of a country road waiting for someone to run him down, just as he accidentally struck and killed another years before. The incident has destroyed his life with his adopted family and ruined his marriage. Now he has nothing left to live for. The first car that comes is driven by his sister Claire. She manages to stop in time, but soon afterward both die. This compelling French mystery follows police as they try to piece together the tragic scenario by interviewing the residents of the coastal Normandy town where Claire and Martin lived. These people give both fictional and true accounts of Martin and Claire's lives.
