Synopsis Simon is forty, he works as a psychologist in the human resources department at SC Farb, a petrochemical complex which is the French subsidiary of a big German multinational company. His job mainly consists of interviewing potential workers until the day he gets a special assignment. Karl Rose, codirector of the factory along with Mathias Just, asks him to carry out a psychiatric evaluation of the latter. Simon finds himself trapped between his two bosses and tries to do his job in the most objective, professional way. But it is impossible to remain on the margin when it comes to Just: that mind is the horror of the longest night and is crowded with ghosts.
