Product Description:

A debauched and desperate man struggles for redemption in the last moments of his life but finds himself propelled down the inexorable path to destruction.

Plot Synopsis:

At his doctor's request, Alain, a disillusioned alcoholic writer, leaves a clinic in Versailles where he is drying out and returns to Paris to visit his friends and old haunts. Alain has made up his mind to commit suicide and, giving himself a 48 hour period, searches for reasons to live. Although his friends care a great deal for him, Alain cannot muster enough feeling for them. When he again examines the superficial lives they lead -- the very life he himself led -- Alain strengthens his resolve to kill himself.
