This isn’t Paul Goullet’s world any more. A lover of old books and pictures, beauty, dreams and imagination, the German finds himself living in an age of chaos. He flees to Paris, but France too has become a surveillance state. Then, on one of his walks through the city, Goullet makes an astonishing find – an old album containing photos of him surrounded by elegant ladies and gentleman in the 1920s. Intrigued, he sets out on his doppelgänger’s trail, which leads him to the south of France. Haunted by disturbing visions and fantasies, he keeps moving through time and metamorphosing into the man in the photo album. And more and more clues suggest that this man has a terrible secret.
