When Adélaïde's parents find her crying, almost mute and incapable of fully explaining what happened, they bring her to the police station and file a complaint against an unknown assailant for sexual assault. Years pass, years in which she says nothing and wears a smile stamped on her face. The innumerable days of suffering and solitude pass by as she fights against the jellyfish. Twenty-three years after the day of her assault, she receives a call from the juvenile squad. An investigator has reopened the classified case of "The Electrician." And suddenly, everything is set in motion.
