From gifted actor-turned-director Jalil Lespert, AGAINST THE WIND is a radiant, emotional and superbly realised story of one father’s challenge to keep his family together.

One morning, Sarah (Audrey Tautou) vanishes, leaving her husband Paul (Little White Lies’ Benoit Magimel) and their young son and daughter reeling, without a word as to her whereabouts or a clue about when she will return. As time passes, Paul anxiously but tenderly tries to sustain some sense of normalcy and after a year, in an attempt to start over, he reluctantly returns to his coastal home town. There, he takes a job as a driving instructor, reunites with his estranged brother and befriends a local police officer (Isabelle Carré). But still he dreams of Sarah, refusing to let go.

Why did she leave, and will she return?

Based on a best-selling novel by Olivier Adam (the cowriter of Philippe Lioret’s Welcome), AGAINST THE WIND is a deeply moving family drama with immense depth and heart.
