Synopsis :

Georges Hyvernaud, the writer is coming back, here and now, in 2014, just for a film in which he is the main character and he gives his eyes. "What a strange idea to make a movie about me" he should think since during his life, his work was received by reject or even worst, by silence. This film explores his universe and relies on his two main works : Skin and Bones and Letter to a little girl. Rooted in specific reality and time, those two works will slowly reached a present echoe.
