Bill Baker (Damon) is a jobless oil worker. He travels from Oklahoma to Marseille to visit his daughter Allison (Abigail Breslin), with whom he has difficult relationships. Imprisoned for a murder she claims she did not commit, she identifies a new element that could free her and urges her father to involve her lawyers. But Bill, willing to prove his worth and to regain his daughter’s trust, decides to tackle the issue in total autonomy. He quickly becomes blocked by language barriers, cultural differences and a complex legal system, until he meets a French actress, Virginie, (Camille Cottin), mother of an eight-year-old girl, Maya (Lilou Siauvaud). This impromptu alliance leads them to embark on a journey of discovery, truth, love and liberation.
