Summary "She can't feel the jellyfish twisting inside her on that day; she can't feel the long, transparent tentacles penetrating her. She doesn't know that their filaments are going to drag her, little by little, into a story that isn't her own, that doesn't concern her. She doesnt know that they're going to derail her completely, pull her down to solitary and unwelcoming depths, hobble her every step, make her doubt her own strength, shrink the world around her year by year until it's nothing but a tiny air-pocket with no way out. She doesn't know that she is at war now, or that the enemy forces are insider her. No one warns her. No one explains. The world has gone quiet. When Adélaïde's parents find her crying, almost must and incapable of fulling explaining what happened, they bring her to the police station and file a complaint against an unknown assailant for sexual assault. Years pass, years in which she says nothing and wears a smile stamped on her face. The innumerable days of suffering and solitude pass by as she fights against the jellyfish. Twenty-three years after the day of her assault, she receives a call from the juvenile squad. An investigator has reopened the classified case of 'The Electrician.' And suddenly, everything is set in motion."--jacket.
