A French soldier, frustrated not to be able to go to war and prove his bravery, is in charge of maintenance at the tomb of the Unknown Soldier. Out of sheer boredom, he begins to invent imaginary lives and hypothetical deaths for this illustrious stranger. Moving between cynicism and compassion, the film takes a fresh look at the Great War (WWI) and its soldiers: Les Poilus.
