EN - On a lonely stretch of road near a small coastal town a murder is committed. There is no one to witness the act and no one who could predict the bizarre repercussions which must inevitably follow. In taking on the identity of his victim, the murderer cannot foresee the sequence of events which, once set in motion, are inescapable, not only for him, but for all the town's inhabitants - from the light-fingered Valentine, who unwittingly leads them to the body, to Captain Mong, who cannot rest until he gets his man. And beneath the apparent workings of justice, contradictory forces are at war...

FR - Un meurtre est commis le long d’une route près d’une petite ville portuaire quelque part en Afrique du Sud. Il n’y a pas de témoin et personne ne pourrait prédire les étranges répercussions qu’engendrera cet acte. En empruntant l’identité de sa victime (un pasteur), le meurtrier ne peut prévoir l’enchaînement d’événements, qui une fois mis en mouvement, deviendront inévitables, pas seulement pour lui, mais pour tous les habitants de cette petite ville. Depuis Valentine, le chapardeur qui, par hasard, mènera la police à la découverte du cadavre, jusqu’au capitaine Mong qui, sans relâche, cherchera le coupable. Mais sous l’apparent travail de la justice, des forces contradictoires s’affrontent.
