Three stories, the one of Mateo Strano, a sales representative who returns to his wife Maria after a long absence… of Georges Vickers, renowned Professor of Anthropology turned beggar, in love with Tania, a “maîtresse” of Pigalle… and of Luc Allamand, a powerful businessman trapped in a gigantic lie which becomes reality. These three tales, part-nightmare, part-comedy, are all one. Our three protagonists are all the same char- acter, a person affected with multiple personality disorder. And if this character does indeed have three lives, like everyone else he can only have one death.
