Synopsis

Thriller. Camille is the only child of a Parisian couple, Ariane and Pierre, and lives in a large house filled with the mother's abstract paintings. He spends most of his time playing with an imaginary friend he has invented. One day he tells Ariane that he wishes to return to his 'real' mother, and actually takes her to the spot where he insists that she lives. Ariane is aghast when Camille suddenly greets another woman, Isabella, who claims that Camille is the reincarnated son that she lost in a drowning incident two years previously. Ariane allows Isabella to live in the family house, but gradually the whole family falls under her influence.
