In all love stories, the wounds of childhood are replayed: one either heals or deepens their wounds.To understand the nature of her relationship with Guillaume, Clotilde Mélisse reflects on the memories that resurface in her mind during a train journey to Heidelberg. As landscapes of the end of the world pass by the window, Clotilde revisits the defining events of her life. The discovery of poetry in her mother’s library, there mother’s murder at the hands of her father, adolescence and its suicidal impulses, the diagnosis of her bipolar disorder. Her encounter, ten years ago, with Guillaume, their epistolary connection that resembled addiction, and the implosion of their idyll upon contact with reality.
Because Guillaume has returned, and for seventeen months, Clotilde has been losing her mind. She, who blossomed within her singleness, sees her heart and soul ravaged by the resurgence of this impossible love. The passing decade changes nothing: Guillaume is still gay and, moreover, in a relationship. Nevertheless, as the train makes its stops, Clotilde hopes to find a solution before reaching the terminus.
