Serge and Jeanne decide to divorce. Their children are small and don’t know anything about it yet. But the separation takes a different turn when Serge learns he only has little time left to live.

The Breakdown (feature) - In development

 

Marion works at the drug police in Paris. Every day she is exposed to insults, rows and aggression of all sorts. Her private life is not any easier as she is separated from her husband and her twelve-year-old son. Within her team some colleagues are suspected to be involved in a drug deal. The tension rises as all agents are being controlled and questioned by the IGPN (the head police department for internal inspection). During an intervention, Marion saves a young Syrian woman and her newborn, and finds herself guilty of professional misconduct. Her case gets more complicated as the intrigues around her densify.
