TERRITORIES

A film by Olivier ABBOU
Canada, near the US border. Jalil, Leslie, Michelle, Gab and Tom are driving back home after a wedding. A car blocks the road. Forces them to stop. It’s the border police. The officers check their ID. They seem suspicious. Their questioning slowly intensifies. In particular, the origins of Jalil seem to intrigue the officers. Bother them. As good citizens, the group stays calm. After all, they’ve done nothing wrong… Except that broken light… Except that pot found in the car… Tension rises. Leslie tries to get Tom’s medication in the car. But the officers prevent her. The police check turns nasty. The group is cuffed. Leslie protests; as an answer, she gets an “intimate” body search in front of her friends. The officers then suspect their little dog is a drug mule… and they rip it open with a knife! The situation spirals out of control. Someone is shot. The group is arrested and sent to a special jail in the heart of the forest. Cages are waiting for them. Along with questions. They’ll need to find answers. Or a way out.
