Stéphane Lafleur’s new film is an absurd science-fiction comedy about the discrepancy between wish and reality. In preparation for the first manned mission to Mars, the Viking Society is conducting a behavioural experiment. Five volunteers form the B Team and will experience the expedition on Earth – with the aim of spotting and sorting out the real astronauts’ problems in advance. Sports teacher David is one of the B Team and takes the opportunity of reviving his dream of becoming an astronaut. It turns out it’s not space that appears to be infinite, but the unpredictability of human feelings.
