Orphan
(Orpheline)

France 2016

In French with English subtitles

111 min

For audiences aged 16 and above


Four moments in the lives of four female characters. Sandra's youth as she moves to Paris and has a brush with disaster. Karine's teenage years, an endless succession of runaways, men and mishaps, because anything is better than her desolate family home. The childhood of a little girl called Kiki, captured as a game of hide and seek turns to tragedy. And finally the grown-up life of Renée, a woman who thought she was safe from her own past. Gradually, we come to understand that these four characters are actually different sides of the same woman.
