During a business school’s hazing weekend (called week end d’intégration in French: WEI), the body of a young man is found drowned at the edge of a pond.
Called to the site, the police question all participants and are left with far too many contradictory stories to accept the idea of an accident.
The police confiscate all of the live footage recorded by the students throughout the weekend to try to understand what happened.
18 hours earlier. The students celebrate their “integration” weekend in a huge cottage in the countryside. Under the ruthless authority of the second year students, the freshman learn quickly the relationships of power, domination and face the ensuing chaos of the weekend.
Throughout the first day, the activities become more and more trash, a gap widens between those who agree and those who don’t with WEI. Pumped up on alcohol, and the progressive intensity of the party, spirits flare and the entire group ends up losing a grip on reality.
