Jenny (portrayed by Adèle Haenel) is a young doctor who has taken over a small practice after her old and ailing mentor. An ambitious woman, she is preparing for a major career advancement – to start working at a prestigious clinic. One evening, after closing her office for the day, Jenny hears the doorbell ring, yet does not answer it, since she is also busy with training the uncertain intern Julien (Olivier Bonnaud). The next morning, the police inform her that an unknown girl has been found dead close by, probably murdered. Driven by qualms of conscience, Jenny seeks to ascertain the identity of the young woman, also gnawed at by the ambition to disclose the killer. Following the industrial thriller Deux jours, une nuit (Two Days, One Night), Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne, true masters of the kinetic social drama, have plunged into a crime story, without waiving the programme bases of their poetics – realistic rendition of the social milieu, marginal characters and exploration of the various aspects of humanism.
