Séraphin arrives at a small station of the Pyrénées-Orientales to walk to the Spanish village Port-Bou. It is the same route through the mountains that Jewish philosopher Walter Benjamin had chosen as he crossed the French border in 1940. Benjamin committed suicide after the Spanish authorities had denied him entry. Séraphin has the project to make this treck with his friend Paul. But it is Paul’s sister, Gabrielle, who welcomes him at the station and suggests to accompany him. From now on Séraphin’s pilgrimage is going to be disturbed.

This film will be screened together with Trois miniatures
