During his acceptance speech for a lifetime achievement award, Nicolas Chauvin – a farmer-soldier, a veteran of the Revolutionary Army and the Napoleonic Wars, “father” of the chauvinism that bears his name – embarks on a grand monologue and recounts his life story. Until, at a bend on a moonlit road, a spectral encounter changes the course of his (non)existence.
