Dispossessed twenty-year-old Bruno, living on benefits and thieving, sells his baby on the black market. Realising his mistake, he scrambles to reclaim his lost son. Winning a second Palme d'Or in 2005 for its director brothers (the first was for Rosetta in 1998), this is a devastating redemptive tale marking the culmination of one man's searing journey into adulthood.
