On a lonely stretch of road near a small coastal town, a murder is committed. There is no one to witness the act and no one who could predict the bizarre repercussions which must inevitably follow. In taking on the identity of his victim, the murderer cannot foresee the sequence of events which, once set in motion, are inescapable, not only for him, but for all the town's inhabitants - from the light-fingered Valentine, who unwittingly leads them to the body, to Captain Mong, who cannot rest until he gets his man. And beneath the apparent workings of justice, contradictary forces are at war.
