Isabelle Huppert as a whistleblower of the French nuclear industry. Based on a true story.
When union representative Maureen Kearney reveals a state secret as a whistleblower, she shakes up the French nuclear industry. Alone and against all odds, she takes on ministers and industrialists to expose this scandal and defend more than 50,000 jobs. When she falls victim to a violent robbery at home one day, her life is completely turned upside down. While the police investigation is in full swing, doubts arise about the exact course of events and Maureen’s victim role changes to that of a suspect.
In 'La syndicaliste', Isabelle Huppert plays her best role since 2016's 'Elle'.
