Based on a novel by Hugo Boris, Night Shift focuses on three Parisian police officers charged with escorting a foreigner back to the border. However, Virginie (Efira) realises their prisoner will most likely be killed on return to his country and so goes about attempting to convince her fellow officers to allow him to escape.

'The director….. treads her signature fine line between auteur cinema and crowd-pleaser almost perfectly' - Hollywood Reporter

'Engrossing and slickly made … told from a predominantly female point of view' - Variety
