Synopsis: When a group of hedonistic West European tourists gather to celebrate Christmas in a remote French chateau, an English woman is murdered. Tatiana, the sad eerie child, declares she knows who did it. The subsequent inquiry into her death to be more of an investigation into the nature of love, insatiable rage and sadistic desire. Interrupting this European world view is the abrasive presence of a North African woman who insists she was a famous writer's whore. When she hijacks their vacation by unfolding the narrative of the grand colonial war she witnessed as a teenager, she ruins their version of history for ever.
