"People can haunt you,
                       dead or alive."


At the age of six, Lucien witnessed a bolt of lightening strike his friend Anthony in the chest. This experience forever bound the two and informed the progress of each man's life. Wary, deliberate Lucien, a small business risk analyst, believes in logic and reason. Homeless and unemployed, Anthony lives outside civil boundaries. While vastly different in temperament and outlook, the men share a common trait. They are lonely. The third point of their triangle, a woman whom they both loved, took her own life many years ago.

Each summer, in an annual tradition of guilt, Lucien collects Anthony off the streets and takes him to the country to be cleaned up and fed. This summer they retreat farther into the country, farther into their memories, and farther into the dichotomy of their roles then ever before. This summer they meet Madeleine. As the three spend hours drinking, swimming and laughing together, the brevity of summer haunts their every move. They must inevitably confront their past, recognise their present, and jump with little knowledge and no security into their future.
