In his first feature, director Emmanuel Courcol convincingly creates the psychological and physical horrors experienced in the aftermath of the First World War. Georges (Romain Duris) is a war hero who has been living a nomad and adventurous life in Africa for four years when he decides to come back to France. Having a hard time finding his place in post-war society, Georges makes the acquaintance of Hélène, a teacher, with whom he begins a tumultuous relationship and at the same time attempts to heal his wounds.
