Gala Presentation

Grâce à Dieu (By the Grace of God)
Alexandre (Melvil Poupaud) lives in Lyon with his wife and children. One day he learns by chance that the priest who abused him when he was in scouts is still working with children. He decides to take action and is soon joined by two other victims of the priest, François (Denis Ménochet) and Emmanuel (Swann Arlaud). They band together to "lift the burden of silence" surrounding their ordeal. But the repercussions and consequences will leave no one unscathed.

Alexandre (Melvil Poupaud) vit à Lyon avec sa femme et ses enfants. Un jour, il découvre par hasard que le prêtre qui a abusé de lui aux scouts officie toujours auprès d’enfants. Il se lance alors dans un combat, rejoint par François (Denis Ménochet) et Emmanuel (Swann Arlaud), également victimes du prêtre, pour « libérer leur parole » sur ce qu’ils ont subi. Mais les répercussions et conséquences ne laisseront personne indemne.
