Three protagonists, three different stories

Florence wants to start in memory of her father, but as a loner she has to learn team spirit. Guillaume is a competitive body and soul, but his greatest struggle is reconciling family, work and passion. Antoine has a drug withdrawal behind him: time to prove to the world what he is capable of. Encordés is an intimate glimpse into an adventure that changes lives.
