Monsieur Girard, a man of quiet resolve, resides in the historic neighborhood of Saint-Lazare in Paris’ 8th arrondissement. Once a sanctuary for lepers, Saint-Lazare’s hospital has metamorphosed into an opulent hotel and shopping haven.

Yet, beneath Paris, far from this transformation, lie the catacombs in the 14th arrondissement—a stark contrast. These catacombs, mass burial sites of the late 18th and early 19th centuries, hold a grim yet fascinating history.

A Story in Paris, a masterstroke by French Broken English Films productions, bridges these two locales. Overcrowded cemeteries like Saint-Innocents once threatened public health, prompting a mass relocation of remains to the city’s abandoned quarries. Bones from Saint-Lazare, too, were transferred to these subterranean chambers. The hospital even served as a temporary ossuary before the bones found their final resting place in the catacombs. Today, visitors to the catacombs can trace the origins of these bones, with inscriptions marking the journey from Saint-Lazare to their current eerie repose.

Driven by a deep curiosity, Monsieur Girard navigates these intertwined histories, uncovering layers of Parisian legacy buried beneath its modern facade.
