Synopsis by Nathan Southern

This tense psychological drama from France concerns Antoine Lahoud (Roschdy Zem), a forty-year-old attorney who believes himself destined for more ambitious pursuits than the meaningless, petty criminal cases he finds himself pursuing. Circumstances change when Antoine receives an offer from the venerable attorney Henry Marsac (Jean-Philippe Ecoffey) to help him defend wicked, evil criminal clients; Antoine agrees but soon learns that the assignments come with messy strings attached.
