L’oeil du cyclone (The Eye of the Storm) is a psychological drama about a young, female lawyer who has been appointed a case that no one else wants – defending a rebel soldier.
In an un-named African country plagued by civil war, both lawyer and defendant are scarred by growing up in a world devastated by cyclical violence. These two profoundly different individuals meet, clash and need to find a way to understand each other. As resistance from her colleagues and family mounts, the young lawyer becomes even more determined to stand up for her client’ s rights to a fair trial.
