A planeful of French soldiers finishing a tour in Afghanistan are flown to the island of Cyprus for a three-day recuperative stint of "sport, relaxation, and collective debriefing." For longtime friends Aurore and Marine and their cohorts, this exercise in compulsory decompression-complete with "therapeutic" virtual reality-has mixed results, as a frightening undercurrent of resentment and hostility bubbles up among the more volatile soldiers in the unit.
