This French crime drama directed by Albert Dupontel is filled with intrigue. Set in 1919, two soldiers - a disfigured but brilliant artist and an ex-accountant start a con that swiftly gets out of hand.

In November 1918, a few days before the Armistice, Edouard Péricourt saves Albert Maillard's life. The two men have nothing in common but the war. Lieutenant Pradelle, by ordering a senseless assault, destroys their lives while binding them as companions in misfortune. On the ruins of the carnage of WWI, condemned to live, the two attempt to survive.

Thus, as Pradelle is about to make a fortune with the war victims' corpses, Albert and Edouard mount a monumental scam with the bereaved families' commemoration and with a nation's hero worship.

The cast features Albert Dupontel, Nahuel Pérez Biscayart, Laurent Lafitte, Niels Arestrup, Mélanie Thierry and Émilie Dequenne
