A deserted soldier of the Tunisian anti-terrorist unit has been living in the wilderness for years. Bearded, dirt-encrusted and with long fingernails, he survives in an abandoned ruined building. As the hermit roams the deep woods, one day he encounters an elegant woman who has lost her way. Like a greedy ogre, he carries her off to his lair as prey. In this unusual reinterpretation of the fairy tale of Beauty and the Beast, the unlikely pair find each other through telepathic eye contact. The woman is also deserted, from a luxurious and boring marriage to a wealthy businessman. An image-rich film that repeatedly defies audience expectation and familiar narrative logic.
