Parisian judge Jeanne Charmant Killman (Isabelle Huppert) has recently sanctioned the arrest of CEO Michel Humeau in a high-profile case of corruption and embezzlement at a giant state-supported company.

As her investigation and interrogations proceed, Killman uncovers an immense scandal reaching into the highest levels of the government. The more dangerous the secrets she reveals, the more powerful she becomes.

However, under the pressures of her sudden influence and renown, Killman’s private life begins to unravel, and she finds herself probing both the limits of her own power and its intoxicating grip.
