At the edge of the forest lies the retort settlement "The Hills of Beauval", a closed society in which all is regulated by the investor who watches over the inhabitants.
A new doctor is needed and so François, a young physician from Paris, comes to the French province. He himself cannot concretely say what drives him to do so. But François allows himself to be driven and quickly finds himself in the society of "Beauval", which is permeated by subtle trials of power and intrigue. It is above all the conspiratorial community of young people that very quickly makes François the plaything of their opaque rituals. Among the girls, especially the shy Claire, the good-looking doctor triggers rapturous fantasies.
