) and Emmanuelle Beaugrand-Champagne, the story revolves around Alice, who, since the death of her brother, has felt increasingly like a stranger in her own life, which up until that point had been “so perfect”. She flees to Japan and takes refuge in a small village at the foot of some cliffs. Nathan used to say he had found peace there, with a certain person called Daïsuké. By retracing the footsteps of her late brother, Alice hopes to get closer to him one last time. But in this strange place, which is at once hostile and welcoming, it is her own life story that she will rediscover.
