At the place called “L’Orée du Bois,” Clara and her father, a photographer with tired eyes, await Marianne’s return. Mother and companion, she has mysteriously disappeared. In the sky overhead, a cloud passes.
In a nearby town, the world disappears in front of Simon’s eyes, becoming black for an instant. Then his memory clouds over.
Soon, in a field, Clara will discover Simon staggering from his wrecked car after an accident. They’ll fall in love. A little later, before all the characters are reunited, the cloud will fill L’Orée du Bois, to separate again for a moment, by its impenetrability, people and things.
