Punchy drama starring Daniel Autueil as a provocative law professor who must prep a young student for a prestigious public speaking contest.

As a young woman growing up in the Paris suburb of Creteil, Neïla Salah (Camélia Jordana) dreamed of becoming a lawyer. Enrolled at the renowned Assas Law School in Paris, on her first day she runs up against Pierre Mazard (Daniel Auteuil), a professor known for his provocative behaviour and misconduct. To redeem himself, he agrees to prep Neïla for a prestigious public speaking contest. Cynical and demanding, Pierre might become the mentor she needs… But to do that, both of them will have to rise above their prejudices.
