Between his buddies and the family firm, Arnaud's summer is shaping up to be peaceful... Peaceful until his encounter with Madeleine, as beautiful as she is a pain, a block of tense muscles and catastrophic prophecies. He expects nothing; she's preparing for the worst. He lets himself be carried along, laughs a lot. She struggles, runs, swims, hones herself. Just how far will he follow her, when she's asked nothing of him? It's a love story. Or a story of survival. Or both.
