In a small town in Brittany, a 10-year-old girl is found murdered. The last\r\nperson to see her alive was her art teacher and professional artist René (Gamblin). He soon becomes the primary suspect in the murder\r\ninvestigation spearheded by the new chief of police Frédérique Lesage (Bruni-Tedeschi), which destroys his life as people in the small\r\ntown believe that he is the killer although there is no hard evidence. René is\r\ncompletely dedicated to his wife (Bonnaire), a nurse whose perpetual happy mood is the polar opposite\r\nof his personality. Meanwhile, Frederique becomes better acquainted with the\r\neccentric residents of the town, including an arrogant television journalist (de Caunes), a small-time crook who fences stolen goods (Marlot), and a\r\nbizarre pair of married shopkeepers (Ogier and\r\nSimsolo).
