EN - Jenny, a young general practitioner, feels guilty for not having opened the door of her practice to a girl who is found dead shortly afterwards. On learning from the police that they have no way of identifying her, Jenny has only one goal: to discover the name of the young girl so that she will not be buried anonymously - so that she will not disappear as if she had never lived.

 

NL - De jonge huisarts Jenny voelt zich schuldig omdat ze de deur van haar praktijk niet meer had geopend voor een jong meisje dat later dood teruggevonden werd. Wanneer Jenny van de politie verneemt dat ze het meisje niet kunnen identificeren, heeft ze maar één doel: de naam van het meisje achterhalen, zodat ze niet anoniem begraven moet worden en ze niet verdwijnt alsof ze nooit heeft bestaan.

FR - Jenny, jeune médecin généraliste, se sent coupable de ne pas avoir ouvert la porte de son cabinet à une jeune fille retrouvée morte peu de temps après. Apprenant par la police que rien ne permet de l’identifier, Jenny n’a plus qu’un seul but : trouver le nom de la jeune fille pour qu’elle ne soit pas enterrée anonymement, qu’elle ne disparaisse pas comme si elle n’avait jamais existé.
