Laura Siprien is scared she may be losing her mind. In the last few weeks, a series of nightmares and hallucinations has left her frazzled and on edge. What is the true story of her adopted son? Where is he from? What is the strange lesion that has appeared on his chest? A few days before his seventh birthday, the boy is abducted. Convinced that she knows where he has been taken, Laura plunges headlong into an adventure on the cusp of the strange and the fantastical. What if destiny only exists to be changed? What if a mother's love is the greatest force of all? In that case, anything is possible.
Based on the novel by Jean-Christophe Grange “Le Concile de Pierre”.
