Episode 3 We Don’t Talk About Hugo
Triggered by a photograph, Ace remembers his delinquent years and his two best friends, Hugo (now presumed dead) and Lucie (still around).
In flashback we see the three pals getting into deep trouble. Hugo is beaten up and taken away by the ruthless Andalou brothers, never to be seen again. Meanwhile back at the present tense, the mysterious Hirondelle who claims Hugo is still alive, tells Ace to “find the Unholy Grail” if he wants to find Hugo.
But what is the Unholy Grail?
