In France toward the tail end of World War II, Maurice (Laurence Belcher) lives in a village like many others.  Many fathers have either passed away or are at war, and single mothers seek comfort amongst one another while waiting for their husbands to return.

The neighborhood women notice Maurice has a special gift: he's able to communicate with the dead, specifically his baby brother, Jacques who died during birth.  Contrary to what one might expect, Jacques is uninterested in returning to the living world, and more interested in inviting those he loves to join him in death.
