Miel-Emile tells the story of the son of a Flemish family with many children who, after World War II, will live in the Pyrenees in the South of France, to embrace paradise. The dictatorial, religious father has bought a mountain there. Via a monologue intérieur by Miel, almost eighty-year-old, one of the sons, we hear the consequences of that adventure and at the same time we get a glimpse into his private life today. The letters from Miel’s mother tell us something else. The romantic idea of life there is shattered by her words.
