But at his parents’ home the atmosphere is poisoned, school life soon becomes tedious, and his disastrous handling of relations with two female colleagues leads to disturbing repercussions … and tragedy strikes.
He longs to wipe the slate of his past clean by realizing his dream of making a fresh start to life in France. And then he’s given the chance of immersing himself in an exciting business venture.
