Synopsis

[In search of the last poem written by Rimbaud, the "man with the soles of wind“]
In 1981, Rimbaud is on the eve of his death and tells Delahaye that he left a poem in Africa.
Delahaye asks Verlaine to go to Africa together to find Rimbaud’s last poem.
In 1871, Rimbaud arrives in Paris to become a poet but is deeply disappointed by listless Parisian poets. Verlaine, feeling ashamed of his own poems and suffering from a nervous breakdown, is totally fascinated by Rimbaud’s poems and decides to abandon his reputation, his family and everything else to leave Paris with him, in order to write perfect poems.
Meanwhile, Delahaye, is left alone in the hometown after Rimbaud leaves. Delahaye feels lost without a goal in life. Feeling extremely instable and conflicted between the ideal and the real, Verlaine loses his reason during a fight with Rimbaud and shoots him with a gun.
