End of the day in the French countryside. A woman, my mother, an exiled Communist political refugee, goes walking in the countryside of Morvan where she has chosen to live because it recalls her childhood landscapes in Morocco. In these Morvan landscapes emerge little by little her reminiscences of another place. A mental territory, the only country of the refugee, spreads out, similar to the spirits which, perhaps, inhabit the house.
