50-year-old Victor Ganz owns a thriving building and civil engineering company that operates worldwide. Some very costly problems on a construction site in Morocco mean he has to go there, to a country where he is confronted with memories of his past, which have been carefully buried in the depths of his mind. Meetings in ministries, disinformation, the reappearance of a former love interest who had mysteriously disappeared, an investigation in the local underground to find her: Victor Ganz slowly plunges into a labyrinthine world where present and past intertwine.
