Occupied Paris, 1941: When all Jews are instructed to come forward and identify themselves to authorities, Joseph Haffmann (Daniel Auteuil in a stunning performance), a talented jeweler, arranges to flee the city with his family. François Mercier, Joseph’s employee, is an ordinary man whose only goal is to start a family with Blanche, the woman he loves. Before leaving Paris, Joseph strikes a deal with François to take over his jewelry store and home until the conflict subsides, but when his attempt to escape is thwarted, the business agreement turns into a Faustian bargain that forever changes their fate.
