Synopsis

Thriller. Marie-Claire `Mika' Muller is the head of her late father's Swiss chocolate company. Marie-Claire is in the process of remarrying Andre Polonski, a concert pianist to whom she was once married eighteen years previously. Andre had remarried a woman called Lisbeth and had a son called Guillaume in the interim, and a rumour abounds that he was almost exchanged for another baby in error when he was first born. The other baby is now a young woman, Jeanne, coincidentally also a piano student. She decides to visit Andre and Mika on a whim, and begins to wonder why she looks so much like the dead Lisbeth, why Lisbeth died in a car crash when she was visiting Mika, and why Mika deliberately spilled a thermos full of hot chocolate in front of her during her visit. When Jeanne's boyfriend tests a chocolate stain found on Jeanne's scarf, he finds it contains a mild sleeping drug often used in cases of rape.
