Director Léonor Serraille won the Caméra d’Or at Cannes 2017 for her feature debut, following a broke young woman looking to rise back up.

"With a cat under her arm, no money and no work, facing closed doors and broken relationships, Paula returns to Paris after a long time overseas. Landing in Montparnasse, Paula is set on starting over. Even if she has no idea which direction she is heading or how to get there, she’ll do it with panache." (French Film Festival)
