A Feature film by Raymond Depardon

Produced by Palmeraie et Désert

Release in France : 29/11/2017

    Synopsis

    Every year in France, 92,000 people are placed under psychiatric care without their consent. By law, the hospital has 12 days to bring each patient before a judge. Based on medical records and a doctor's recommendations, a crucial decision has to be made - will the patient stay or leave? 12 days after which lives can change forever. Granted access to these hearings for the first time, celebrated filmmaker/photographer Raymond Depardon captures these extraordinary encounters between justice and psychiatry. Astonishing, enlightening - a film that gives a voice to those who have previously been voiceless.
