Synopsis by Olivia Cantor

Co-written and directed by Yann Gozlan, this French thriller follows Mathieu (Pierre Niney), a black box analyst, tasked to find out what happened when a brand-new aircraft nosedived and crashed. Expecting to have an investigation take place for a while, he is surprised when authorities act quickly to resolve the case and close it. Using his expertise, Mathieu goes back to the audio evidence and suspects that the recordings from the plane’s black box may have been modified to cover up something. Thus, he goes on his own to find out the truth. Also starring Lou de Laâge and André Dussollier.
