Escaped prisoner-of-war Julien Sarlat is hiding in the small village of Cambeyrac, using a secret observation post overlooking the village square to watch the permanent theater that people offer in the course of the day. Loves, hatreds, jealousies, cowardices, acts of heroism... nothing escapes the observer's eye, especially not the beautiful waitress Cécile. Until the moment comes when, spectator no more, he must become an actor himself and meet his destiny. This hidden life he had hoped to live was just a reprieve.
