Caesar is lost in other lands, his madness holding the castle, even the dry landscape, in a state of unreality, until the arrival of the young killer, Amanieu, wakes this isolated household from its dreams.Extraordinary events ensue, from Bonnes battle with the bees to Caesars joust against the German giant who seeks revenge on the murderer of his brother. While man and wife soar to even greater heights of illusion, their daughter Flore travels through myths of her own to a cheerful relinquishment of childhood and an alliance with Amanieu..
