Threat advisory: Under evaluation

Movie propaganda

Allies at sea. Rivals ashore.

In 1963, Antoine Cassendi (Grégori Derangère) is wounded in the Algerian war and arrives at the small island of Ouessant to join the team of lighthouse keepers. The locals feel the job should have gone to one of their own, and Antoine is not only a stranger but also a novice, and struggles to fit in. Easygoing and good-humoured despite the animosity directed toward him, Antoine slowly bonds with sullen, unfriendly Yvon Le Guen (Philippe Torreton) during their periods of extended isolation in the offshore lighthouse. Worse for Antoine is that he is unable to disguise his deep attraction to Yvon's wife Mabé (Sandrine Bonnaire) and this threatens both of them.
