CGiii Comment

On an island in French Polynesia a writer returns to her country after having triumphed in France with a novel. However, she is disoriented and in a creative crisis. Faced with the impossibility of writing new works, she decides to accept a simultaneous translation job together with an ambassador. A strange love attraction begins between them, full of contrasts. Little by little she realizes the cynicism of international politics, with a latent threat of new nuclear tests by the French government. Her love affair with the ambassador will be affected by that conflict, and interest and romance will mix in a confusing and absorbing way until the sad end.
