On a small island off the south coast of France, Robert Hendricks, an English doctor who has seen the best and the worst that the twentieth century had to offer, is forced to confront the events that made up his life.

His host, and antagonist, is Alexander Pereira, a man whose time is running out, but who seems to know more about his guest than Hendricks himself does.

The search for sanity takes us through the war in Italy in1944, a passionate love that seems to hold out hope, the great days of idealistic work in the 1960’s and finally – unfor-gettably – back into the trenches of the Western Front.
