Paris 1941. François Mercier is an ordinary man who only aspires to start a family with his wife Blanche. He is also the employee of a talented jeweler, Mr. Haffmann. Facing the German occupation, the Jewish jeweler arranges for his family to flee Paris and strikes a high-stakes bargain with his gentile assistant. The consequences of this agreement play out over the ensuing months and change the fate of our three protagonists. This understated and deeply engrossing story of moral decline and justice was adapted from an award-winning play and stars celebrated French actor Daniel Auteuil.
