Synopsis

Benoit is a student in Art History. When it is time for him to do his mandatory military service, he feels that his carefully planned life is falling apart. A fake suicide attempt gets him exempted, but leads him to learn something far worse than army life. Something irrevocable: as the Army doctor told him, the result of his test is positive. He tries to come to terms with this. However, he quickly realises he will never be the same again and like the Romantic heroes of his former life, he chooses to reject his destiny and to transform his existence into a constant exaltation of the senses. Omar, who has always known the hell that surrounds us, is his guide on this initiatory journey...Benoit cannot forget. He fulfils the only dream he has left: a trip to Italy. There, he meets Claudia. She is beauty, love...and perhaps the possibility of a new life.
