This multiple award winning drama (including the Prix du Jury in Cannes) combines several true accounts of police officers in the Child Protection Unit. Maïwenn explores unflinchingly how they balance the tough realities they encounter on the job - dealing with pedophiles, abusive parents, and wayward adolescents - with their private lives and the strong camaraderie of their team members. A difficult yet touching human story.

Maïwenn, 35mm, 127 min, France, 2011 (French, Italian, Romanian, Arabic)
