Vir­gi­nie, Erik and Aris­ti­de are poli­ce offi­cers. All three try to keep their per­so­nal and emo­tio­nal lives tog­e­ther while dealing with dai­ly inci­dents of vio­lence in homes and on the streets. One night, they are assi­gned an unusu­al mis­si­on: to dri­ve a migrant to the air­port for unspe­ci­fied rea­sons. On the way the­re, Vir­gi­nie dis­co­vers that the man will be sen­ten­ced to death if he goes back to his coun­try. Faced with an unbe­ara­ble dilem­ma, she starts to ques­ti­on their mis­si­on. The trio has one night to deci­de a man’s fate. Pro­li­fic French filmma­ker Anne Fon­tai­ne tack­les this dra­ma­tic and rele­vant topic with all the inten­si­ty and empa­thy it requi­res. Her stel­lar French actors are as com­mit­ted as the cha­rac­ters they embo­dy are hesi­tant. They are sup­por­ted by Iran’s Pay­man Maadi who gives a devas­ta­ting per­for­mance as the Taji­ki­sta­ni who can’t speak a word of his “host” country’s lan­guage. Their strugg­le to express a varie­ty of over­whel­ming emo­ti­ons reso­na­tes deeply and moves the view­er bey­ond words.
