Successful German writer Sandra lives with her French husband Samuel, their visually impaired son Daniel and dog Snoop in a remote chalet in the French Alps. Samuel is also an author, but suffers from writer's block. For financial reasons, he is in the process of converting the unfinished chalet into an Airbnb. After Daniel returns from a walk with the dog one day, he finds his father's body on the snowy ground below the top window of the house. Was Samuel's fall a fateful accident, suicide or murder? Even more than the question of the circumstances of Samuel's death, the long and exhausting trial that follows reveals the couple's relationship in the most painful detail. This sharp, psychological courtroom drama won this year's Golden Palm at Cannes.
