Comic artist Raphaela and publisher Julie have been a couple for ten years, but now their relationship seems to be at an end. During one of their gruelling arguments, Raphaela falls, breaks her arm and the two end up in a Paris emergency room. Outside, violent protests rage, the hospital fills with injured demonstrators, the staff are at their wits’ end and the situation threatens to escalate. When the angry truck driver Yann is transferred to Raphaela’s room, prejudices and class resentments collide. But in the course of the eventful night, many commonalities will also be found.

With IN THE BEST HANDS, Catherine Corsini tackles hot topics such as the nursing crisis and the division of society. Her film, which celebrated its acclaimed world premiere at the 2021 Cannes Film Festival, is as bitter as it is funny, as energetic as it is touching.
