Marseilles, 1975. Bernard Vipont is a successful lawyer, but beneath his bourgeois surface lurk darker passions. His father having been killed by collaborators during the war, he has been waging a clandestine campaign of retribution ever since, reappropriating art treasures stolen from Jews. But when he discovers a stolen masterpiece in a monastery, he may have stumbled into a maze of deceit and betrayal that even his ingenuity cannot extricate him from. A maze that seems curiously linked to his other obsession - the sexual fixation that forces him to enact a bizarre ritual in Madame Gazhakian's high-class brothel...
