Finding the most accurate way of transcribing the intention of a voice, immersing the audience in an unknown sound territory, following and supporting the direction taken by the director in spite of the obstacles, the challenges do not lack in fiction.
For the production sound engineer and his assistant it is also about having people understand what is at stake in the work of sound on set. The pleasure to work together then combines with technique and creativity to serve the movie.

In the forest near Marseille, the Franco Vietnamese director Henriette Nhung is shooting Dangerous Liaisons with the help of her son Mike.

But when the lead actor disappears, everything comes to a halt. The film looses its Valmont, and the director soon after. Behind her, she leaves the entire cast and crew, now passengers aboard a ghost ship with only the young Mike as captain.

As she wanders the port city, Henriette discovers a world that reminds her of her former home, Vietnam. Here, she meets a man haunted by a long journey with no return.
