November 1918. A few days before the Armistice, Ă‰douard PĂ©ricourt saves Albert Maillard's life. These two men have nothing in common but the war. Lieutenant Pradelle, by ordering a senseless assault, destroys their lives while binding them as companions in misfortune. On the ruins of the carnage of WWI, condemned to live, the two attempt to survive. Thus, as Pradelle is about to make a fortune with the war victims' corpses, Albert and Ă‰douard mount a monumental scam with the bereaved families' commemoration and with a nation's hero worship.
