«On this Sunday of spring 1925, Willy Wolf is about to jump from the deck of the aerial ferry bridge of Nantes!
Willy puts on his leather helmet and carefully walks up to the edge. It is time to disobey. It is time to dive into the depths and to celebrity… Willy plunges without anybody noticing that he has already suffocated from the exhaust fumes of his flare. He falls heavily into the water.»

A century after his death, we have adapted the story of this man in order to explore our limits and reveal the tenuous boundaries between realising an exploit and the absurdity of putting oneself at risk.
