Julie finally gets an interview for a job where she can raise her children better only to run into a national transit strike.

The César Award-winning star of Call My Agent! and My Donkey, My Lover & I, Laure Calamy demonstrates the phenomenal range of her talents in this unique thriller about a single mother who lands an interview for a job that might offer a better life for herself and her two children. Julie must employ her considerable resourcefulness to get across town during a transport strike, risking her current job as a hotel cleaner for the promise of something better. The film won Best Actress and Best Director awards at last year’s Venice Film Festival.
