In the modern-day Parisian neighborhood of Victor Hugo’s novel, a newly transferred cop learns abusive policing practices from two veterans. When a young boy records them going too far, the community threatens to explode.
This acclaimed César Award-nominated short was expanded by director Ladj Ly into a full-length feature, which became France's Official Academy Award Entry for Best International Feature Film in 2020.
