Stuck in a boring, repetitive life and restricted by a family who does not love her well, Coura has known from a young age what she is expected to do with her life. After studying to be an engineer, she will become a sought-after scientist, as her parents had decided for her. But the teen hasn’t been happy for years. The gulf separating her from the outside world digs away at her day after day. She wants to be loved and accepted for who she is, not for the person she’s pretending to be. That’s what kindles a macabre desire within her, one so tempting that she ends up giving in to it: disappearing. Leaving. Going no matter where. Seizing her freedom. Leaving the darkness and solitude. Taking back control over her life. One winter morning, she leaves France with no regrets. She has just turned 18 and the world is holding its arms out to her. Immediately, the girl is reported missing. Missing Person posters appear everywhere. Her disappearance is all the more worrying when she is in fact living a peaceful life far away. In Amsterdam, where she ended up, Coura makes a fresh start, experiences new things, new loves… But her past catches up with her. She agrees to prove she’s alive, but at what cost? The story, full of family drama, of a girl in search of her true self.
