Laure Calamy, the César Award-winning star of Call My Agent! and My Donkey, My Lover & I, demonstrates the range of her talents in this relentlessly paced, nailbiting thriller about Julie, a single mother who lands an interview for a job that might offer a better life for herself and her two children.

Julie goes to great lengths to raise her family in the countryside, without the help of her frequently missing ex-husband, while keeping her job in a luxury Parisian hotel. When she finally gets a job interview for a long hoped for position, a national strike is called, paralysing the public transport system, threatening to derail the fragile balance that Julie has established. Calamy delivers a knockout performance as a woman struggling to hold her life together and retain her dignity, despite the overwhelming odds.
