The spectacular story of intrepid French scientists Katia and Maurice Krafft, who died in a volcanic explosion doing the very thing that brought them together: unravelling the mysteries of our planet.

Katia and Maurice Krafft loved two things — each other and volcanoes. For two decades, the daring French volcanologist couple roamed the planet, chasing eruptions and documenting their discoveries. Ultimately, they lost their lives in a 1991 volcanic explosion, leaving a legacy that forever enriched our knowledge of the natural world.

Director Sara Dosa draws on the Kraffts’ spectacular archive to tell a story of primordial creation and destruction, following two bold explorers as they venture into the unknown, all for the sake of love.
