Translated from the French.

The story of one couple - first from the husband's point of view, then from the wife's.

The husband, a painter in Casablanca, has been paralyzed by a stroke at the very height of his career and becomes convinced that his marriage is the reason for his decline.

Walled up within his illness and desperate to break free of a deeply destructive relationship, he finds escape in writing a secret book about his hellish marriage.

When his wife finds it, she responds point by point with her own version of the facts, offering her own striking and incisive reinterpretation of their story.
