L’affaire Dumont

Michel Dumont, a convenience store delivery man, separated and father of two young kids, is charged, judged and sentenced for a rape he denies ever having committed. In the course of his trial, he falls in love with Solange, a young single mother, who believes in his innocence. While he serves his time in prison, she marries him and she embarks on the colossal task of proving his innocence and having the court rehabilitate him.

The story is a contemporary version of David versus Goliath that takes place over ten years and makes us ask some serious questions about the notion of innocence.
