La Boîte noire

Arthur is left in a coma for several hours after a car accident. While coming to, he raves incoherently, giving free reign to things directly rooted in his unconscious. When conscious again, he’s confronted by a curious dilemma: what was he doing that night on the road near Cherbourg?

Isabelle, one of the nurses at the hospital, noted Arthur’s troubling, disturbing and liberating ramblings in a black notebook. To help him answer his questions, she gives Arthur the notebook, as though offering him a treasure, the written testimony of his delirium.

From that moment on an incredible adventure begins for Arthur; he’ll be the victim, the guilty party and the investigator… of his own life.

Invaded by the traumas of our unconscious, should we nevertheless stamp out the memories that clutter up our minds?
