Maxime, a Val-d’Or native in his early twenties, works in an underground mine near his hometown. He shares his life between his girlfriend with whom he’s patiently trying to father a child and his childhood friend Julien, now disabled following a car accident caused by Maxime a year before. Julien’s father is a colleague at the mine and still holds a grudge over the accident. One night, there is an explosion underground. Maxime heads underground that night with the firm intention to bring all his colleagues back alive.

Through the daily life of these mine workers, director Dupuis illuminates the contrast between the harshness of the setting of underground mines and the great humanity of those who work there.
