Pierre Leprieur is a respected figure from a powerful dockers’ union in Le Havre. But on the night of his 60th birthday, his world is turned upside down. His two sons find themselves implicated in a cocaine bust and are placed under arrest. Pierre asks his daughter, a criminal lawyer, to defend her brothers who claim to be innocent. Believing he has been the target of a plot, Pierre decides to investigate. But the truth is dangerous and brutal. Behind a sprawling drug smuggling operation lies a curse: the curse of this city and the Leprieur family…

Our take

Filmed by Magnetic Beats director Vincent Maël Cardona, this is the tragic story of the lies and redemption of a unionist’s family confronted with drug trafficking in the docks of Le Havre. Starring a quality cast led by Olivier Gourmet, Panayotis Pascot, Margot Bancilhon, Pierre Lottin and Alyzée Costes.
