Une périphérie urbaine hivernale. Une jeune femme, à un tournant de sa vie, évolue dans un environnement aseptisé. Il est question de procédures : sanitaires, funéraires, aussi. Elle semble parée pour une lutte secrète, telle un samouraï des temps présents. Mais son combat, intérieur, consiste à laisser affleurer les sentiments, à convoquer les émotions véritables dans un cadre protocolaire exsangue. Alors, comme autant de talismans, elle convoque les figures d’êtres chers, cristallisant des instants de tendresse ou de cruautés quotidiennes.

28 min, 16mm, color, 4/3
