understand the accident of his death and to reconstruct the life of the man who had left her
mother before Melanie was born. Her only clues lie within the house's filthy basement--a
room with blacked-out windows, chicken bones and cigarette butts strewn on the floor, and
stacks of homemade pornographic videos narrated by a scarred and cynical French journalist.
