In the smoking room of a pavilion of the Hôpital Sainte-Anne, three men and three women confront their past, secretly heavy with daily abjections and compromises. Orchestrated by the ghost of Dr. Lenoir, a strange game of Cluedo will take the place of a trial, letting each of them unmask themselves as the rounds go by. All have committed a crime: that of having given in, of having adapted, of having become the servants of a system, of having bent the knee to market values.
For these six characters in search of their hearts, pathologies are only refuges, the ultimate escape after a too late realization. Endearing in their blindness, they remain no less guilty. Extremely representative of the failings of contemporary society, these characters are certainly not victims.
