    • Synopsis
    • Maxime, a Val-d’Or native in his early twenties, works in an underground mine near his
      hometown. He’s on a 14 days on 14 days of schedule. He shares his life between his
      girlfriend with whom he’s patiently trying to father a child and his childhood friend Julien,
      now disabled following a car accident caused by Maxime a year before. Since then, guilt
      eats him slowly as he intends to redeem himself, only to find Mario, Julien’s father, on his
      path, slowing the process down. The father, who works at the mine with him, still holds a
      grudge for his role in the accident. On the night when Maxime learns that his girlfriend is
      still not pregnant, there is an explosion underground. Newly appointed on the mine rescue
      team, Maxime heads underground that night with the firm intention to bring all his
      colleagues back alive. Through the daily life of these mine workers, Souterrain puts forward
      the contrast between the harshness of the setting of underground mines and the great
      humanity who work there.
