When a brand new top-of-the-range aircraft crashes en route from Dubai to Paris, black box analyst Mathieu (Pierre Niney) is called in to discover the reason why. But the case is closed down by the authorities, and Mathieu cannot help but sense there is something wrong with the evidence.

As he listens to the tracks again, he starts detecting some seriously disturbing details. Could the tape have been modified? Going against his boss’s orders, Mathieu begins his own rogue investigation – an obsessional and dangerous quest for truth that will quickly threaten far more than his career…

If you like thrillers and mystery-solving with a peppering of plot twists, this tightly-scripted web of lies and deception is for you.

Director: Yann Gozlan
