Synopsis

François, a simple-minded young man is on his way to Mado comes across an 11-year-old girl, who lives alone with her brutal mother. He kidnaps and keeps her with him in the garret of his parents' farm, where he lives the life of a recluse and an outcast. In the beginning Mado is afraid, but, as the days go by, a friendship is formed. To communicate they only murmur in order not to be discovered, and so, become closer and closer.

But the reality of the world, from which they thought to have escaped, forces them to separate...
