Main Cast: Olivier Gourmet, Adèle Bochatay, Louka Minnella

Frank, a man of action who worked his way up all by himself, dedicates his life to work. No matter the place or the circumstances, be it day or night, he’s on the phone, handling the cargo ships he charters for major companies. But when he has to deal with a crisis situation, Frank makes a brutal decision and the consequences are severe. Profoundly shaken, betrayed by a system to which he gave his all, he has to progressively question himself to save the one connection that still matters to him: the bond he’s managed to maintain with his youngest daughter, Mathilde. An impeccable, sensitive performance from Olivier Gourmand lies at the heart of this outstanding picture — and the moral choices at its centre are ones that resonate with us all. This film recently opened in France to rave reviews and fantastic box office: come and see why.
