Directed by Pierre Godeau

Based on true events that occurred in a detention center in Versailles in 2011, Down by Love depicts an impossible love story between Jean, a prison governor (Guillaume Gallienne, member of the Comédie-Française) and Anna, an inmate (Adèle Exarchopoulos, Blue is the Warmest Color).

She has been incarcerated awaiting trial for four years; although he is married, and father to a young girl, he puts both his family and his career at stake, when he enters into an illicit and impassioned affair with the young woman.
