Synopsis

Fifty-year-old Daniel Vernant, an ex-cop turned debt collector, fulfills his “dirty work” without emotion or tact. One winter’s day, on a roadside restaurant car park, eighteen year old Laura asks him to give her a lift. He accepts. As they are driving along, she offers her “services” for cash. A furious Daniel throws her out of the car. The next day, Daniel goes to see Mrs Savielli to collect her instalment. The old woman is worried. Her granddaughter, with whom she lived, has been missing for two days. Daniel recognises Laura from a photograph. Terribly troubled, he offers to help the old woman.
