Based on a macabre event, the exhumation of the corpse of an unknown solider, this film brings together the strands of a complex, fast-moving story played out over 100 years in Lorraine. In it we come upon thwarted destines, brutal deaths, and exile. Through one of two characters straight out of novels, we discover the adventure of the 20th century, seen though the prism of the wars between France and Germany, and the final throes of the French nation before adopting a European identity which transcends it. This film is an investigation into the “scenes of crime”.

Three people sleeping side by side. On the uncomfortable seats of the stuffy airplane in the air. Three friends. I’m the friend in the window seat. The other two are a couple, Emre and Melisa. I’m alone, they are together. And another difference. I’ve only closed my eyes. They are asleep.
