Synopsis

Jean Renault est un comédien qui a autrefois remporté un César du meilleur espoir masculin. Mais son caractère a graduellement anéanti sa carrière, jusqu'au moment où Pôle Emploi lui propose un dépannage : faire le mort pour une reconstitution de crime, dans une station alpine de sports d'hiver, Megève. Jean s'y heurte à la juge Desfontaines, par son besoin de jouer les personnages des victimes et surtout de remettre en cause l'enquête en pointant des incohérences.

Mais un jour arrive celui à qui appartenait le sac et son contenu…
