In the Saint-Omer court of law, young novelist Rama attends the trial of Laurence Coly, a young woman accused of killing her 15-month-old daughter by abandoning her to the rising tide on a beach in northern France. But as the trial continues, the words of the accused and witness testimonies will shake Rama’s convictions and call into question our own judgment. One of the most acclaimed films of the year, Saint Omer is France's official selection for the Academy Awards.
