Autumn, 1943. Guy lives alone in a cottage in Lot-et-Garonne. He's a simpleton, who draws in a primitive style, ekes out a living in the woods, is vague about his history (claiming he was raised by a cow), and has a girl-friend in the village, Jenine. In the woods, he finds a wounded German soldier and takes him home. Rolf recovers, but Guy won't let him leave, trailing him, grabbing him, challenging him to feats of strength. Rolf stays and a friendship develops between them. Guy tells Jenine about Rolf, but they must keep him hidden or risk punishment as collaborators. When the men's friendship becomes sexual, jealousy and possessiveness bring on tragedy and pathos.
