    – “Seriously, Julien, if I were suddenly free, could you free yourself too?” – “Say again?” A man and a woman, secretly in love, alone in a room. They desire each other, want each other, and even bite each other. In the afterglow, they share a few sweet nothings.
    At least the man seemed to believe they were nothing.
    Now under investigation by the police and the courts, Julien fails to find the words.
    “Life is different when one lives it and peels it off afterwards”. What happened? What is he accused of?
