Witold (by Jonathan Genet) has just failed his law exams, and Fuchs (by Johan Libéreau) has recently quit his job at a Parisian fashion label. Both are going to spend a few days in the countryside, and choose to stay at a so-called family inn. They are welcomed by a sparrow, hanged in the forest by a string. In the guesthouse, there is a servant – who has a strange, twisted mouth – and a young house mistress (by Victória Guerra) whom Witold falls obsessively in love with. She’s already married to a decent young man, but is she decent herself?
