It’s night. Paco Sabian walks on a road in Ardèche. It’s raining, the cold creeps in and freezes his bones, the moon isn’t ready to give way. A car stops at this incongruous hour. A woman driving alone. A mother retracing the path on which her son disappeared just five years ago. Since then, nothing. Paco is dark, silent, dragging fate, like others their shadow. Who is he ? Why is he there? In his vagabond costume, he seems to be pursuing a goal known only to himself. And when on his way, he crosses Evil, he does not turn away, he does not close his eyes. He faces and confronts her. Finally no matter his name and why he was passing by. Paco takes the form of fate, the last resort of those who, without him, had no chance of obtaining justice.
