Synopsis / Plot
After killing a child and crash his plane on a routine bombing mission in Vietnam, Pierre suffers from delayed stress and partial amnesia. Returning to France, the traumatized Pierre leads an aimless life in a provincial town, until he makes friends with a precocious 12-year old girl abandoned by her father at a convent school. Posing as her father, Pierre contrives to meet the girl every Sunday, to play with her and perhaps recover his memory. The innocent friendship is misread by nearly everyone, even people who know him well.
