March 2020: The Covid-19 epidemic strikes the Furtado-Heine home for the elderly in Paris. Out of 120 residents, 35 are ill with the virus and 8 have already died from it, while the nursing department is sorely understaffed. Over the course of three months, Éric Guéret filmed an intimate journey during which, with solidarity and devotion, heroic men and women in white coats fight to save the lives of the elderly.
