In the area of Saint Jean de Luz, a young woman is found dead after being tortured with typical medieval methods.
Those methods were used at the time for the women that were convicted of being witches. Marie Daguerre (38 years old), a police captain newly promoted in the district of Saint Jean de Luz, is in charge of the investigation: this is her first murder case.
In Paris, Vincent Becker (50 years), a mythical figure of the French police receives a call for help from his son Mathias. Jean and Mathias have not spoken to each other for years. This call from Mathias was given from the Saint Jean de Luz area. Vincent rushes there in searching for his missing son.
In addition to her investigation, Marie is forced by her superiors to help out Vincent Becker in his own researches. Rapidly it is evident that the two cases are intertwined. The two investigators who have nothing in common, will have to join their forces and confront the local legends.
As the investigation progresses more victims are discovered and it seems clear that Mathias Becker is involved. But how deep? Is Mathias a victim or a dangerous murderer?
