Directed by: EMMANUELLE BERCOT
Starring: Sidse Babett Knudsen, Benoît Magimel, Charlotte Laemmel, Isabelle De Hertogh
The inspirational crusade of one dedicated nurse against a large-scale pharmaceutical company forms the basis of acclaimed director, screenwriter and actress Emmanuelle Bercot’s (Mon Roi, AF FFF16) super-charged adaptation of real-life whistle blower Irène Frachon’s bestselling memoir.

Irène (Sidse Babett Knudsen) is a hospital lung specialist who begins to suspect a connection between recent patient deaths and a medication called Mediator. Seeking solid proof to justify her suspicions, she joins forces with the hospital’s head of research Antoine, played by Cannes Best Actor Award winner Benoît Magimel (The Connection, AF FFF15). What follows is a long and rough road strewn with shady coverups, impenetrable institutional frameworks and powerful figures who are either corrupt or simply have their heads buried deep in the sand. Irène's determination in pursuing the cause catapults her into the spotlight. By challenging one unscrupulous company, she shakes the foundations of a system that has become inexcusably complacent.

Knudsen’s remarkable performance as the steely heroine displays a dynamic energy which penetrates each and every scene as Irène battles to maintain her own humanity under adverse conditions.
