Miriam (Drucker) has left her husband Antoine (Ménochet) but is forced to share custody of their youngest, Julien (Gioria), after the judge rules in his favour – despite her claims that her ex is violent. Premiering at the BFI London Film Festival 2017, this is a tightly paced and unnervingly relevant study of a woman trying to protect herself and her children from a bitter and violent man.
