Tom R. disappeared, leaving no trace, somewhere between the cafe where he always went and the street he walked every day. After 23 years, a team tries to make a film about what happened and, ambitiously, find a solution. But the mystery does not seem to want to unravel.

We enter a film inquiry which reveals the mysterious disappearance of Tom R. The door through which he left, a missing wallet, objects, books, a highlighted passage... The search is relentless, re-staged, the course is redefined, the precision is mad and the investigation covers all possibilities and testimonies; a boat, a dream and a song take us on the darkness of stories.
