EN - Govert Miereveld is a teacher in a girls school. He is married and has a happy family, but there is more than meets the eye. He’s in love with one of his pupils, Fran. Years later, when Govert is asked to assist professor Mato in an autopsy, he meets Fran, who is now a famous actress, once again. When she, more or less, asks Govert to kill her, he shoots her. Dream or reality? Is Fran really dead? We meet up with Govert once more, when he is being looked after in a psychiatric hospital, still doubting if Fran is really dead.

Based on the work of Johan Daisne

FR - Govert Miereveld est instituteur dans une école pour fille. Il est marié et a une famille heureuse, mais ce n’est pas aussi clair que ça en a l’air. Il est amoureux de Fran, l’une de ses élèves. Des années plus tard, on demande à Govert d’assister le professeur Mato lors d'une autopsie. Il rencontre Fran, qui est désormais une actrice célèbre, une fois encore. Lorsqu’elle demande, plus ou moins, à Govert de la tuer, il lui tire dessus. Rêve ou Réalité ? Fran est-elle morte ? Nous retrouvons Govert un peu plus tard, lorsqu’il est enfermé dans un hôpital psychiatrique alors qu’il doute encore sur la mort de Fran.
