Lydia, a midwife highly invested in her career, has completely lost control of her life. Was it due to heartbreak, her best friend Salomé’s pregnancy, or meeting Milos, with whom she could have a potential new relationship? Lydia gets stuck in a spiral of lies where everyone’s life is turned upside down. With a superb performance from Hafsia Herzi, first time writer director Iris Kaltenbäck delivers a riveting slow burn psychological thriller.

This film is part of Young French Cinema, a program of Unifrance and Villa Albertine.
