Dissatisfied and discontent, Florent-Claude Labrouste begrudgingly works as an engineer for the Ministry of Agriculture and is in a dysfunctional relationship with a younger woman. When he discovers her ongoing infidelity he decides to abandon his life in Paris and return to the Normandy countryside of his youth. The only relief comes in the form of a pill. With social unrest intensifying around him, and his own depression deepening, Florent-Claude turns to this new medication in the hope that he will find something to live for.  Serotonin is a story of solitude, longing and individual suffering, and a powerful criticism of modern life.
