May 1968. Paris. Student protests turn violent and threaten to topple the government. An aging General De Gaulle faces opposition on every front. With just a handful of his closest aides, the beleaguered president boards a helicopter. Destination: unknown. The government is in crisis. The Prime Minister is pressed to turn against the missing President. On his return, we learn that De Gaulle had flown to Baden-Baden to meet with his military commander. The next day, he makes a defiant radio address, refusing to resign and dissolving the National Assembly. He has regained the upper hand… for now. To this day, the clandestine journey remains a mysterious episode in the life of the great war hero. Was it merely a political tactic? Or fear of an attack on the Elysée Palace? This absorbing drama recreates these turbulent days to shed light on the man behind the uniform. Based on a book by Hervé Bentégeat (“La fuite à Baden”)
