Algeria, 1961. France has just detonated its fourth atomic bomb and a group of ill-equipped young soldiers, led by a war veteran (Olivier Rabourdin) and accompanied by a passionate scientist (Swann Arlaud, Bloody Milk - SFFF 2018), is sent to the point of impact to take soil samples and measure the level of radioactivity. But the closer they get, the more their captain finds himself wondering about the future that awaits them.
