We follow someone, a woman. Is this woman already dead or the only survivor of a tragedy? We do not know anything about it. She walks, stunned, in the deserted ruins of what was a village. From these ravaged places, this woman brings out the terrible images of a massacre, intertwined with the sweet memories of familiar times before the horror.

Nino and Suzanne are driving on a Corsican road. They're heading to their wedding party. A convoy of flowered cars is chasing them. In a moment of bewilderment, the car veers off the road without any guest noticing. What was supposed to be the happiest day of their lives will end up being the most important day of their couple.
