Aurore and Marine, who are in the military and who have been friends since childhood, have just completed a tour in Afghanistan. Before returning to civilian life, they participate in a "decompression session" with their section members at a luxurious hotel in Cyprus.

Between sessions of well-deserved therapy and rest, they all struggle with bad memories, most in connection to a mission that went wrong. Aware of their superiors' view of them, some are reluctant to share their suffering and disillusionment so as not to be stigmatized, preferring to anesthetize their traumas with parties and alcohol. Although Marine is reticent about the therapeutic approach, Aurore agrees to comply, realizing that the whole truth has not been told about the tragic event in which she was wounded.
