Set in the aftermath of the Nazi Occupation of France, when shame and fear polluted many a life, Secret tells the troubled story of a sickly boy who grows up with an imaginary brother, aware of what he has always somehow known and yet was never told. Psychoanalyst Philippe Grimbert spoke about his autobiographical novel, the dark secret his parents kept from him throughout his childhood and the blurry line between truth and lies.
