In February 1990, Denis Bénoliel was handling a pesticide spray that exploded in his face. He is disfigured for life, and 80% of his body is seriously burned. But Bénoliel miraculously comes back to life. This film shows his long struggle, first against himself then against the manufacturer RECKITT and COLLMAN. It is the fight of David against Goliath, a path filled with ambushes. A plea against a society that is run by greed and interest, yet a great lesson of life. After a long legal battle, the President of the multinational company ends up being found guilty.
