The Law


Christian Faure

With: Emmanuelle Devos, Eric Naggar, Michaël Cohen

Fall 1974, French President Valéry Giscard d’Estaing puts his Health Minister, Simone Veil, in charge of a daunting task: to carry the abortion law. During three days, she will defend her text before parliamentarians with exemplary tenacity.
