The twisted world Avril lives in is an alternative to the France we know in which, at the verge of the French-Prusian War, leader Napoleon III shows up in a laboratory that is investigating to make invulnerable super-soldiers. The meeting ends up in a tragic accident, which causes Napoleon V to assume the charge as a new leader. Europe then starts to suffer an energetic shortage and soon turns into a place invaded by pollution . Years later in those deplorable conditions, in 1941, France has adopted a Steampunk style, and scientists are beginning to disappear in mysterious circumstances. Avril (Marion Cotillard) will start an adventure in the search for her parents, who are scientists as well, and will try to find out the origin of the kidnaps.
