Alice is the perfect wife and mother, living happily with her husband Francois and their son in an apartment in Paris. When her credit cards are declined one day while shopping, Alice discovers that Francois has been living a secret life, spending all of their money at a high-end escort service and leaving them completely bankrupt. Even worse is that Francois has suddenly abandoned them, leaving Alice and their son to fend for themselves. The winner of the Grand Jury prize at the 2019 SXSW Film Festival, Alice features an incredible performance by Emilie Piponnier in the titular role and marks a highly impressive debut from writer and director Josephine Mackerras.
