Synopsis

Véra Cabral works in a psychiatry emergency intervention unit. Her boss, Edouard Russel, usually obnoxious and full of himself, waits outside of her door one night, in tears, to ask her a big favour: his son is wandering in his room, in the middle of a psychotic episode and the cut-up body of a young girl at his feet. Russel wants Véra to diagnose him as insane to prevent him from going to jail. Véra rejects the idea of the young man being guilty, even if insane, and decides to investigate the case.
