Bénédicte, a tough female firefighter, has just transferred to a small rural fire station near Carcassonne. She is welcomed by Philippe, the very experienced but kind-hearted captain of the brigade. It’s a hot summer with multiple fires blazing, some the result of arson. Tensions are high – on the job fighting fires but also within the team and Bénédicte finds herself at odds with one of them.
