The stunning and accomplished Isabelle Huppert (I Heart Huckabees) stars as Jeanne, a tenacious judge known as "the piranha" of the judiciary system, who puts her personal life on the back burner to pursue white-collar criminals with their private hands in public pockets. After gaining fame for locking up an embezzling CEO, Jeanne pushes the limits of her intoxicating power further than ever and winds up isolated in a dangerous game of threats and intimidation.
