Bernard Tapie and Patrick Chêne, personalities recently hospitalized, have hailed the performance of France’s public establishments and the devotion of their teams.

An unflagging commitment that Ophélie Meunier and the teams from Zone Interdite were able to follow, day to day, behind the scenes in one of the biggest hospitals in France: the Teaching Hospital (CHU) in Lyon South. With 80 hectares, 28 operating theaters, more than 800 beds and 5,000 staff, it is one of the largest employers in the region. In this super-size CHU, men and women devote their passion and their energy into the daily saving of lives, under conditions that are sometimes very difficult. Whether doctors, surgeons, nurses, interns, auxiliary nurses or even simple stretcher bearers, we shall experience, over several months, the successes and the joys, but also the doubts and the setbacks of these hospital heroes.

We will also discover the incredible logistics serving the Lyon hospitals: 15,000 meals a day, the daily washing of 20 tonnes of laundry. This exceptional documentary will take you behind the scenes of the hospital in an original way. A stage where the most dramatic of stories are played out, where our heroes face the daily challenge of life and death.
