January, 1920. 350,000 French soldiers remain missing in action. Major Dellaplane tirelessly matches the dead and the wounded with families' descriptions. Honor and ethics drive him; he hates the idea of "the unknown soldier." Into his sector, looking for her husband, comes a haughty, politically connected Parisian, Madame Irène de Courtil. Brusquely, Dellaplane offers her 1/350,000th of his time, but as their paths cross and she sees his courage and resolve, feelings change. After he finds a surprising connection between her missing husband and a local teacher, Irène makes Dellaplane an offer. This man of action hesitates: has he missed his only chance?
1920. La Première Guerre mondiale est achevée depuis deux ans. La France panse ses plaies et se remet au travail.

Leur enquête les conduit à la même source d'information, le commandant Dellaplane. Du 6 au 10 novembre 1920, Irene, Alice, le commandant se croisent, s'affrontent et finalement apprennent à se connaître.
