Everything started one Saturday in July. Anna and Constant Guillot and their two daughters live in the remote mountain village of Carmac. Everyone in Carmac knows each other - that is until Bakary and Sylvia Langlois arrive with their three children, the first black family to have lived in the village. The new family's impressive chalet and expensive cars are in stark contrast with the modesty of those of their neighbours, yet despite their initial differences, the Langlois and the Guillots form an uneasy friendship. But when the Guillot's finances come under strain, the underlying class and racial tensions of their relationship come to a breaking point, and the unthinkable happens. How could a seemingly 'normal' person commit an atrocious crime? And how can that person's loved ones ever come to terms with it afterwards?
