Birds tweet. The wind gently rustles leaves. A man dives on a rabbit and kills it. At last, he and his wife can finally eat another good meal. The couple’s clothes and wedding rings give away the fact that they were once civilized, but now they live in a forest cave in the middle of the Pyrenees. While John spends his days searching for food, his wife, who suffers from panic attacks, hardly dares to step out of the cave. One day, when he is forced to pick up medicine from a nearby village, John is unable to avoid meeting the helpful farmer André. André man- ages to gain John’s trust and reawaken his longing for civilisation. John refuses, however, to give away the location of his wife’s hideout.
