“This limited series takes place during the night that Notre Dame burned. It’s about the destiny of men and women who have their own fire to put out.
As the Paris firefighters try to stop the flames from spreading in the Cathedral, the show also follows characters being put through the wringer – they will have to fight each other, love each other, come across each other, hate each other, smile at or help each other – so that, in the end, they may have a chance to start all over again.”
The series is built around insights taken from French firefighters from the night Notre Dame burned down and introduces new characters to create an idea about how this event affected French lives.
The show follows a group of firefighters as they attempt to put out the fire at the Notre Dame Cathedral while fighting their own inner battles and life problems. It contrasts the fire with their inner turmoil and the overarching human quest for survival.
