In a provincial suburb, three neighbors grapple with modern tech and social media: Marie faces son’s disrespect due to a sex tape; Bertrand’s daughter endures online bullying; Christine’s driver ratings won’t improve. With a hacker’s aid, they battle Big Tech. Success uncertain, but hope remains.

Director’s biography:

Gustave Kervern and Benoît Delépine form an iconic duo of contemporary French filmmakers. Their collaboration began on television and solidified with committed and offbeat feature films, sometimes absurd, such as Aaltra (2004) and Louise-Michel (2008), blending dark humor and social critique. Among others, they directed Mammuth (2010), Le Grand Soir (2012), Saint-Amour (2016), and En même temps (2022). Kervern and Delépine founded their production company No Money Production in 2005.
