Winner of the Palme d’Or at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival, the new film from acclaimed director Jacques Audiard (A Prophet) is a gripping, human tale of survival.

With the civil war in Sri Lanka reaching its end, a Tamil soldier (Antonythasan Jesuthasan) poses as the husband and father of two other refugees in order to escape their ravaged homeland.

Arriving in France, the makeshift ‘family’ sets about establishing a new life, only to find themselves once again embroiled in violence on the mean streets of Paris.
