The great white mountains, beautiful and hostile, and the exiles who cross them to reach France and the director who meets them and films them for three years. The intimate side of this transitional time for them emerges.
Ossoul, the Sudanese poet, Mamadou, the survivor of an icy night on the Echelle pass, Charlotte, the courageous mother and others gradually finding their feet and managing to embark on a new life. Filmed over a 3 year period, L’Aventure is a story of resilience, friendship and bare emotions. The portraits become intertwined and each one is brought to understand the other’s situation.
