A young woman is found dead at the foot of a rocky peak at dawn, her hands crossed on her chest, her face calm. Accident ? Crime? Why this staging? Why does it resemble so much the suicide of a young woman in the middle of the war of 14, found in exactly the same place and under the same circumstances? Commander Godard, for only a year at the head of the gendarmerie platoon, begins a strange investigation, which will lead him into the past. But it will be again and always Gabrielle Sandraz, at the crossroads of all stories, guardian of everyone's destinies, who will put him on the trail of a forgotten event.
