Maxime (Robillard), a Val-d’Or native in his early twenties, works in an underground mine near his hometown. He’s on a 14 days on, 14 days off schedule. He shares his life between his girlfriend—with whom he’s patiently trying to father a child—and his childhood friend Julien (Pellerin), now disabled following a car accident caused by Maxime a year before. Since then, guilt eats him slowly as he intends to redeem himself, only to find Mario (Hyndman), Julien’s father, on his path, slowing the process down. The father, who works at the mine with him, still holds a grudge for his role in the accident. One night, there is an explosion underground. Maxime heads underground that night with the firm intention to bring all his colleagues back alive. Director Sophie Dupuis’ previous film, Chien de garde (Family First) screened at Cinéfest Sudbury in 2018.

Le jeune Maxime travaille dans une mine à Val-D’or. À travers plusieurs difficultés qu’il traverse dans sa vie, il remet en question sa définition de la masculinité. C’est dans la forte fraternité qui unit tous ses collègues de la mine qu’il trouve l’appui nécessaire pour surmonter un sentiment de culpabilité tenace qui l’empêche d’atteindre le bonheur. Puis un jour, il y a explosion sous terre. Maxime se lance à la rescousse de ses collègues blessés. Souterrain est le deuxième long métrage de Sophie Dupuis. Son premier, Chien de garde, a été présenté lors de Cinéfest Sudbury en 2018.
