    • Synopsis
    • The daily grind for the cops of the Paris Police Department's Child Protection Unit...
      Taking in child molesters, chewing over relationship issues at lunch, busting pickpockets, never finding the words to talk about it at home, interrogating abusive or rapist fathers, taking statements from children, celebrating a confession dragged out of a suspect, confronting the excesses of teen sexuality, watching your partner's back, laughing uncontrollably in the bleakest moments. Protecting the children of Paris.
      How do these cops balance their private lives and the reality they face every working day?
      Fred, the rebel, falls for Melissa, a photographer on assignment with the CPU for the government. Torn between Fred and the world he reveals to her, and Lino, her wealthy, unfaithful conductor husband, how will uptown Melissa come to terms with Fred's violent reality?
