Night Shift

Three Parisian police officers are charged with driving a stranger back to the border. However, Virginie realizes their prisoner will most likely be killed upon return to his country and so goes about attempting to convince her fellow officers to release him. Faced with an unbearable dilemma, she starts to question their mission. The trio has one night to decide a man’s fate. Prolific French filmmaker Anne Fontaine tackles this dramatic and relevant topic with all the intensity and empathy it requires.
