The dark story of a man whose suddenly and mysteriously changed face triggers a sequence of strange events

Raoul Cerusier, an entirely ordinary man, seems to have changed his identity somewhere between home and the government office he is visiting to obtain a document. Between blackmailing the secretary of his former self and seducing his own wife, Raoul is confronted with the dark realization of his true nature.
