Samuel decides to seclude himself in his chalet in the Italian Alps. One night, a young Afghan woman, trapped by the snow, takes refuge in his house. Her goal: to get across the mountain to France. Samuel doesn't want any trouble but faced with her distress, decides to help her. He is far from imagining that beyond the hostility of nature, it is the hostility of men that they will have to face... Coming from an organization dedicated to helping refugees in France, Guillaume Renusson directs a touching first feature film about trust and survival. In the main roles, Denis Ménochet and the Franco-Iranian actress Zar Amir Ebrahimi perfectly embody not only the physical effort of crossing a border illegally but also the mental burden that comes with it.
