The story set in 1919. Mathilde (Creator/AudreyTautou) was engaged to her childhood sweetheart Manech (Gaspard Ulliel) when he was enlisted to fight in [[UsefulNotes/WorldWarI the Great War.]] Manech tried to get excused from duty by getting his hand shot, but he was instead convicted of self-mutilation and left to die with four other soldiers in the no-man's land between the French and German trenches. Mathilde, however, refuses to believe that Manech is dead, and sets out on an investigation to find him. Along the way, she meets people who are also connected to the five condemned soldiers, including vengeful prostitute Tina Lombardi (MarionCotillard), and learns their stories.
