This is the story of a man, "Zizou", in his fifties, who still lives in the ruins of a fourty year old memory. Being a Pisces, he’s too sensitive to be able to let this memory go, he accidentally stumbles upon a number of evidence related to the incident (letters and a torn toy), he decides to revisit the old past and the old house that witnessed that incident. He recalls a small entry he had written in his journal as a child, where he predicted a bloody incident to take place and home, and about how he’d survive it and grow old forever overthrown by that event.
