Premiered at the Director’s Fortnight in Cannes and London Film Festival in 2018, Philippe Faucon’s film follows Amin (Moustapha Mbengue), a Senegalese immigrant who works as a hired hand for a building company based in a Paris suburb. He sends the little money he earns to his wife and family he had to leave behind. When he encounters Gabrielle (Emmanuelle Devos), a middle-aged French divorcée, an intimacy develops between the two and they gradually open up about their lives.
