Summary "Lucius Scrofa, officier français de retour d'Afghanistan où il a tué un militaire américain, s'est évadé de sa résidence surveillée. Il débarque avec sa Harley Davidson chez son ancien lieutenant pour l'inviter à le rejoindre dans son aventure. Mais il tombe sur Anastasie, sa jeune nièce, étudiante en deuxième année de psychologie. Elle est fascinée par ce personnage hors norme, il est séduit par sa fraîcheur. Ils partent tous les deux en moto pour ce qu'Anastasie découvrira être la dernière virée de Scrofa, une cavale furieuse et mystique à travers le pays. Entre réflexions philosophiques, analyses de notre société, montage de fusils à pompe, scènes contemplatives ou de passion truculentes, cette histoire d'amour et de mort tout en dialogues mêle road trip et tragédie grecque." -- Cover
"Lucius Scrofa, a French officer who returned from Afghanistan where he killed an American soldier, escaped from his house arrest. He arrives with his Harley Davidson at his former lieutenant's house to invite him to join him on his adventure. But he comes across Anastasie, his young niece, a second year student in psychology. She is fascinated by this extraordinary character, she is seduced by his freshness. They both set off on motorcycles for what Anastasie will discover to be Scrofa's last ride, a furious and mystical run across the country. Between philosophical reflections, analyzes of our society, mounting of shotguns, contemplative scenes or earthy passion, this story of love and death while dialogues mixes road trip and Greek tragedy." -- Cataloger's translation of the cover.
