 Forbidden innocence


Every night, Paul, a man in his thirties, wakes up from terrible nightmares. Although he can’t remember anything about these nightmares they nevertheless throw him in to a terrible state of anxiety. One day, during psychoanalysis, Paul becomes aware of the origin of his problems by re-experiencing the heavy atmosphere of his early childhood. He embarks on a cathartic journey that will open the door on the possibility of freeing himself.
