Paris 1930. Paul has only ever seen the high walls of the austere orphanage in the Parisian suburbs. But he is entrusted to Célestine, a cheerful country lady and her husband, Borel, the rather stiff game-keeper of a vast estate in Sologne that is owned by the Count of Fresnaye, a quiet widower who lives alone in his manor. The Count tolerates poachers on the estate but Borel relentlessly hunts down the most cunning of them – a man named Totoche, often failing as he is never able to catch him in the act.
When Paul meets the famous Totoche, the rebellious city boy will learn about life, nature and its secrets. But there is one secret he does not yet know – it is no coincidence that he is brought there.
