Court Fiction - 13' - En distribution

Directed by Bernard Dresse

Ivo, who is in his thirties, gets off the train and calls his wife to tell her he is on his way home. His four-year-old daughter answers the phone and tells him that she is home alone. The young frightened father does everything he can do to get home as soon as possible. When passing a household appliance store, he sees an image of war on a television screen. It shows a young father coming out of a destroyed house carrying his dead child. Stressed and confused, Ivo loses track of reality with every minute that passes, as he tries to make his way home. His own reality and the reality of war become inextricably linked and indistinguishable.
