“I helped them however I could.”

Lucie (Clémentine Célarié)

Jacques (Sam Karmann) and Lucie (Clémentine Célarié) are facing a 5-year prison sentence and a €30,000 fine for helping undocumented refugees cross the border to stay in France in the small village of Saint-Laurent. For their trial, they went to the former palace of the Dukes of Aquitaine which was the court house of Poitiers.

Telling the story of refugees settling in a small French village, Gabriel Aghion decided to use “real” refugees to play the role of migrants in this TV movie. “It was a beautiful meeting with people from Egypt, Iran, Morocco … A beautiful shooting, very rewarding” said Clementine Célarié about the filming of the movie.

When it first aired on November 26, 2019, the TV movie garnered 3.06 million viewers.
