LA BETE CURIEUSE
Released on parole after eight years in prison, Céline must rebuild her life. Working as a receptionist in a hotel, she discovers the violent side of working life and, to hide her past, invents a fictional persona, Héloïse. She hooks up with Idir, with whom she car-pools to work every morning. A relationship that helps her cope with the restrictions of semi-freedom and enjoy life again...
