Les plaies dorsales

Malik, a 40-year-old man has always lived paralyzed by a strange fear of "disappearing." He meets Krystha, a mystical and disturbing young woman. Malik seems to be terrified of seeing the ghosts of the past resurface and refuses to confront them. But this is to misunderstand the obstinacy of Krystha who decides to cure him of his ills against his will by taking him on a breathless road movie to the heart of his deepest anxieties.
