The Viking Society is recruiting volunteers to collaborate on the first manned mission to Mars. The objective is to form an alter ego B team who will live the adventure in parallel, behind closed doors on Earth, in the hope of remotely solving the interpersonal problems encountered by the five real astronauts who will soon land on the red planet. The film is about how David, a physical education teacher, takes this opportunity to rekindle his dream of becoming an astronaut and, perhaps, make a difference.

This is Stéphane Lafleur’s first feature since Tu dors Nicole (2014).
