Synopsis: Paris, 2054: a dark motion-captured world of shadows and right angles. Ilona Tasuiev, a brilliant young scientist, is kidnapped, and her employer, Avalon, a major health and beauty corporation, wants her found. Karas, a jaded police captain, is assigned to find her, fast. He seeks help from her sister, Bislane, and they are soon uncovering identify theft, missing files, and hints that something back in 2006 may explain what's going on. Ilona's mentor, Avalon's vice president, a Japanese researcher, an underworld boss, and Bislane's drug connection all figure in the mix. So does an attraction between Karas and Bislane. What's behind the kidnapping? Who's the victim?

Avalon's clinic.

Dog hair...

here and there...

I found some old underwears.

A lil' tip?

She's working at Avalon's laboratory.

But Ilona is regularly

on duty here

during her free time.

There are better things

to do to relax.

Facing reality puts

ideas back in place.

Genetic exploration is hazardous.

I've known more hazardous things.

Research is a never ending fight.

Lose its the purpose

and you'll lose its meaning.

That's why I'm pushing

young people to

get their hands dirty.

Is it the reason you quit?

You did your duty.

I realized I'd be more useful here

than in a laboratory.

You're still working

for Avalon.

It's difficult to get away

from Avalon.

You called

the police at 0h34.

A 22 years old girl

is 20 minutes late.

Don't you think it was a bit

too fast to sound the alarm?

Unfortunately I think I was right.

She's never been late.

Not even for a minute.

Ilona made big sacrifices

to succeed.

She would have never given up.

She's an exceptional woman.

And beautiful.

You don't miss a thing, Karas.

Do doctors make you nervous?

No, hospitals do.

We all have our bad memories.

I'm done Cecilia.

Very well doctor.

Thank you.

One last thing:

What's the subject of Ilona's research?

She's preparing a biogenetics Ph.D.

About progeria.

An abnormality provoking

premature ageing.

A disease affecting children.

A tough fight I used

to carry on myself.

It was a long time ago.


Did you miss me?


I hate it when you come here.

Me too.


Nobody knows anything about the girl.

Her sister is often

at the Zbench and at the 71.

I don't give a shit about the sister.

I've got nothing else.


Your blonde just vanished.

You're the magician, Goran.

I'm doing all I can.

Ok! Ok, Ok!

I know someone,
