The lives of a group of French-Canadian miners is thrown in disarray after an unexplained underground explosion. Maxim, a young worker with a troubled history, tries to find redemption for past mistakes by saving his stricken colleagues. A tense and remarkably intimate drama that delves deep into the dynamics of fractured friendships and fragile masculinity.
‘Dupuis puts human drama ahead of the action in this naturalistic, character-driven film…[this] disaster film digs deeper than most’
Cath Clarke, The Guardian
‘Dupuis’s knack with actors and for navigating how men perform masculinity — and are hindered by it — is on full display here.’
Alex Heeney, Seventh Row

Our beautiful art deco inspired auditorium can be found just off East Oxford's Cowley Road. We are open 7 days a week. We open the cinema and box office 30 minutes before the scheduled start time of each film, and the Box Office then closes 10 minutes after the film starts. We don’t show adverts, just a couple of trailers, so don't be late as the film itself starts very close to the advertised time!
