Since a new law passed in France in 2013, all patients involuntarily admitted to a psychiatric hospital must appear before a judge within 12 days, and every six months thereafter, if necessary. A judge sits on one side, the patient on the other. Between them: the question of what the word "liberty" truly means. This film was authorized on an exceptional basis. To protect the anonymity of those who appear in it, names and places have been changed. From documentarian Raymond Depardon. Cannes 2017.
