Based on Joseph Roth novella, Kartak is a homeless alcoholic in Paris who is given 200 Francs by an elderly man and told it must be repaid to the Shrine of St Therese. Although Kartak, is a man of honour, his will is weak and he spends the money on drink. With no means to replay the money he has visions of St Therese chiding him for his failure to settle his debts.
