In Safe Hands

Different destinies meet in this intelligent, socially realistic drama about the French adoption system. Newborn Theo's uncertain future is in the hands of the authorities, as the young mother chooses to adopt him away right after birth. At the same time, the involuntary childless Alice has been fighting for ten years to become a mother and hopes to become Theo's adoptive mother. But as the biological mother changes her mind, it's not just Theo's fate that is at stake. During Theo's first three months of life, we follow doctors, psychiatrists, social workers and a potential mother in a struggle to ensure the little boy's security, love and a secure future.
