), the story begins with a man waking up one morning in an open field, half-naked, with no memories of his mishaps of the previous day. As soon as he gets back to his hotel, he realizes that he has a freshly sewn-up scar on his lower back. An old lover, who is also a surgeon, confirms his suspicions: someone has stolen one of his kidneys. He will sacrifice everything to find him: his family, his work, until he goes insane. In the meantime, we discover that his “predator” is not exactly the monster we thought he might be...

A delegate production of JPG Films and No Money ProductionsAblation benefits from coproduction with the Belgian company Nexus Factory, pre-purchases by Canal+ and Ciné+, funding from Sofica Manon 3 and La Banque Postale Image 7, as well as the support of Pictanovo and the Nord-Pas-de-Calais region (via the CRRAV) where filming will take place until July 18th. French distribution will be handled by Ad Vitam and international sales by Funny Balloons.
