Ombline is condemned to 3 years in prison for assault. 20 years of age with no future ahead of her, Ombline finds out she is pregnant; she gives birth to baby Lucas who will become her last hope. Ombline has 18 months according to the law to prove herself a worthy mother.
Shifting from violence to tenderness to anger Ombline will learn the tough way how to cope with life in prison through harsh fights and glimpses of hope sometimes.
Entirely shot in a real prison, Stéphane Cazes’ debut feature is deeply moving and humane. Mélanie Thierry, Ombline, “ delivers a riveting performance (…) [She]offers up a fearless, highly physical performance as the troubled but warmhearted Ombline, (Jordan Mintzer)
(…) Ombline is a film that is remarkably easy to engage with, one that offers a powerful tribute to the courage and resilience of women. Stéphane Cazes is definitely a name to watch out for”. (James Travers)
