But very quickly, doubt sets in, and everything falls apart. Too much alcohol, anxiety… a fight breaks out, and when he comes around, Alex finds himself face to face with a man he doesn’t know: a sixty -year-old, good looking shrink who will become his accomplice and his confident in one night. Alex will dare to open up and tell his story. He, child who was neither raised nor regarded by his father, yet who remains proud to be a Delval.
