Having made self-reflective films about the acting business, director and actress Maïwenn Le Besco takes a new direction with this study of the everyday life among the officers at a Parisian Child Protection Unit. When a photographer is commissioned by the Interior Ministry to document the unit’s work, she discovers the dramatic, tragic and yet some times, comic experiences of the children. At the same time Le Besco gets to know the team of nearly a dozen officers trying to cope with stress, hoplessness and their Sisyphean work situation. It takes its toll on their private lives, where many of them are too exhausted to deal with their personal lives—or their relationships. As pressure builds up, the need to let of steam becomes increasingly necessary.
The complex story line is built episodically. The verdicts of the defendants are never revealed and this enhances the unit’s daily struggle. For the unit, closure is a rarely experienced luxury.
