Frail, Odilon is put to nurse at the winery of Peyrelebade (near Bordeaux) bought by his father when he was still in Louisiana. Odilon spent his childhood and Peyrelebade Bordeaux where he lives with his uncle. In this campaign located in the Médoc, near the Landes, he certainly spends a lot of time dreaming, watching the clouds go by and observe nature.
