Pierre Niney (Cesar Winner Best Actor for YVES SAINT LAURENT) stars in this inspirational journey based on a true story.
“You will surely forget your trouble, recalling it only as waters gone by. Life will be brighter than noonday, and darkness will become like morning“. Job, XI, 16-17
Frank is one of the best firefighters in Paris. Their motto: to save or perish. Married with newborn kids, he is happy. Waiting for what all men like him are waiting for: test by fire. When that test arrives, Frank sacrifices himself, stuck in the blaze and rescuing his unit.
He miraculously wakes up at the Serious Burn Unit and understands that his face melted in the flames and his body is changed forever.
A long recovery process starts where Frank will need to accept to be saved as well.
