The Heathlands, France, 1920. A young couple, just married, is crossing the threshold of the house that will be their home, a little house secluded in the middle of the wood and close to a black lagoon.
She, Linon, is young and in love. He, Méric, a handsome man always smoking a pipe tobacco that smells of spices and attracts little yellow butterflies. With them, the three sisters of the groom completely covered with black veils, mourning the death of their father, and a priest.
