Sundance Selects releases the film May 18, and adult audiences should treat themselves to this very human drama. Writer-director and co-star Maïwenn leads her ensemble cast (including Emmanuelle Bercot, who co-wrote) through the aches, pains and necessary-to-survive humor of her French police officers working within Paris' Child Protection Unit.
