Maxime, a young man in his mid-20s, works in a mine far from the city. He spends 14 days at the mine and 14 days at home. When he is at home in Val-d’Or, he shares his time with his girlfriend and his childhood friend Julien. Julien is disabled after a car accident caused by Maxime two years earlier. Consumed with guilt, Maxime seeks to redeem himself. But he is hampered by Mario, Julien’s father, who also works at the mine and still blames him. One day, an explosion occurs in the mine. As part of the rescue mission, Maxime goes underground, determined to save his friends and colleagues and bring them out alive.

Souterrain was nominated as Best Picture at both the 2021 Canadian Screen Awards and the Prix Iris in Québec. It was the opening film of the Rendez-vous Québec Cinéma film festival on April 28, 2021.
