After fighting for years to film inside the Palais de Justice in Paris, Raymond Depardon finally got permission. The film documents the dialogue between 14 suspects of minor offences and the prosecutors. Filmed in "long take", it quietly captures their interview process, revealing the humanity behind the different faces and what happens when ones hands are tied in the judicial system.
