The astounding Valeria Bruni Tedeschi delivers a tour-de-force performance as the high-strung half of a couple coming apart at the seams amid the anti-Macron “yellow vest” protests.

Following a series of nasty and needy texts to longtime partner Julie, Raf accidentally hurts her arm and must, for better or worse, rely on Julie to help her navigate France’s strained healthcare system. Meanwhile, yellow jacket protester Yann ends up in the same hospital and becomes something of a rival to Raf. Juggling emergency room chaos with the political divide among patients, the drama comes to a head when the protest makes its way to the hospital and rages around them.
