Spring 1960. At the very moment when Antoine learns that Lila, his very young wife, is pregnant, he is called for Algeria. Engaged in a conflict whose stakes exceeded him, he asked not to hold a weapon and found himself a nurse at the military hospital in Sidi-Bel-Abbes. Upstairs, Oscar, a young corporal amputated with a leg and locked in a stubborn silence, loving him strangely: with him, Antoine discovers the true reason for his presence here. For Oscar, "everything has to be started again" and, in the first place, to find the word again, to recount what left him speechless. Even the arrival of Lila, who had come to join him, could not turn him away from Oscar, whose narrative he must hear, a wild tale of men who had become wolves. --Page 4 of cover translated by Babelio.
