On their way home from Afghanistan, a band of French soldiers stop in Cyprus for decompression: three days at a sun-splashed resort, where they will undergo intense psychological debriefing. There, amidst the crystal-blue waters and hordes of vacationing tourists, Marine (Soko) and Aurore (Ariane Labed) – two of only three women in their male-dominated unit – confront rage, trauma, and army sexism as they struggle to readjust to "normal" life.
This riveting drama – winner of the Best Screenplay award in the Un Certain Regard competition at Cannes – is an all-too-rare exploration of war's psychological wounds on female soldiers.
