1972: in a small northern French city, a Miner’s teenage daughter is found dead in a wasteland. Murdered.
The prime suspect: a respected local Notary. After being held for lenghty questioning, he is charged and jailed by the examining judge.
Scandal! A notary in prison is unusual and the case attracts media spotlight, taking a political turn.
For the first time in legal history, the secrets of an ongoing police investigation are not respected by the examining magistrate, determined to leave no stone unturned to elucidate this murder.
