In the early 1920s, Georges Laffont (Romain Duris), traumatized by the horrific trench warfare, travels to West Africa into the vast territories of the Upper Volta in the company of Diofo, an artist and also survivor of the Great War. But his adventure leads him to a dead-end, and he comes back to Paris where his brother Marcel, a war invalid, lives with their mother. After the war in Europe, life went out without him. Georges will desperately try to find his place, with the help of Hélène, a sign language teacher with whom he will have a tumultuous relationship, and his family, that he selfishly left behind. He will finally attempt to heal the wounds. Following the screening: masterclass with celebrated composer Jérôme Lemonnier.
