In a dystopian near future, single people, according to the rules of The City, are taken to The Hotel, a restrictive regime where they are obliged to find a matching mate in forty-five days. If an occupant manages to find a partner among others, the new couple is given a month to try to live together in a special section of the facility, after which they are freed; failing results in being killed and reincarnated in an animal of own choice, and sent off into The Woods surrounding the structure.

Quatre personnes (une infirmière, un conducteur d'ambulance, une gymnaste et son entraîneur) ont créé une sorte de troupe d'acteurs qu'ils ont appelé Alps par ironie car selon eux, aucune montagne ne peut réellement se substituer à une autre montagne. Ils jouent les rôles de personnes décédées dans la vie de tous les jours des proches des disparus afin de leur permettre peu à peu d'accepter leur perte et de faire leur deuil. Les quatre premières séances sont gratuites. La « troupe » dirigée d'une main de fer par le conducteur d'ambulances, dont le nom de code est « Mont-Blanc » n'accepte pas tous les rôles. En effet, les recherches pour incarner les disparus sont très poussées afin de rendre le moindre détail crédible. Cependant, la « troupe » travaille dans la plus complète illégalité.

A married couple and their three young adult children, a son and two daughters, live in a large compound with a garden and swimming pool. A tall fence surrounds the property and the children have never been on the other side of it, for their parents have kept them unaware of the outside world, even of the existence of the telephone. They are taught different meanings for everyday words. The parents promise that each child will be ready to venture outside the compound once she or he has lost a dogtooth. Although the children are told they have a brother just on the other side of the barrier, he never appears.
