Granny is dead. Berthe is no more. Armand’s grandmother had sort of slipped his mind. Armand runs a pharmacy in the Paris suburbs where he lives with his wife, Helene. In a medicine cabinet he hides his magical equipment- he’s secretly preparing a show for his lover’s daughter, Alix. And Granny? Should she be buried or burned? Who was Berthe?
