Synopsis: When one day, Simon Rosenberg, watching the news on TV, notes that we celebrate the centenary of the First World War, he painfully remembers that he survived it ... And as he recalls the hundred years gone by, he wonders if he might be one of the last survivors, maybe the last, who knows ... ? So he decides to come forward and talk to the press, he is alone, his children, his wife , died a long time ago. He has pains everywhere, he wants to leave this world ... But he is afraid. These celebrations have awakened in him the smell of burned human flesh, shredded bodies, cries and incessant shelling, the men who go crazy, this suffering that eats a man’s insides and prevents him from sleeping for years. Simon lives, as a recluse, shamed and guilty of having survived the inferno, with the only company of a TV and a nurse who comes twice a day. Simon, cannot die. It’s as if something is keeping him alive, as if he needs to testify to some terrible event.
