On assignment in India, French television journalist Marie Lelay is caught in the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami. Pulled lifeless from the water, she is resuscitated but left for dead. She gasps back to life after a near death experience, glimpsing a vision of the afterlife. Marie is reunited with her lover Didier as the disaster subsides, and they return to Paris. Marie's experience interferes with her work, and Didier, also her producer, sends her on a leave of absence.
