Tombant is the story of a teenage summer struck by a terrible accident: four young people are driving at night on a coastal road, the night before a ceremony for their friend Cosmos, who died at sea when a trawler sank.
The car falls off a cliff, and the driver, as it sinks into the water, relives the memories of the summer that has just taken place. It is a tender story in a hostile setting, a tale of love and teenage friendships in a port, Saint-Malo, affected by rising waters and repeated fires.

Have you ever dreamed, like a flash, of having an accident? That you experienced, although safe and sound, in detail? In this very intimate novel, Fabien Clouette works on this universal motif and traces, in sounds and images, the trajectory of a love launched into the sea.
