In this moody drama set in Paris, Virginie (Virginie Efira), Erik (Grégory Gadebois) and Aristide (Omar Sy) work as police officers, trying to hold their personal and emotional lives together while dealing with daily occurrences of violence in homes and on the streets. One night, they are assigned an unusual mission and must drive a migrant (Payman Maadi) to the airport to be deported from France. On their way, Virginie discovers the prisoner will be sentenced to death if he goes back to his homeland. Faced with an unbearable dilemma, she starts to question their mission. They have the night to decide one man’s fate.
