Polisse follows the daily lives of a tight-knit team of men and women working in the Child Protection Unit of the Parisian police. Not only must they deal with the stress of their jobs, but the inevitably linked fall-out in their personal lives: mental breakdowns, divorce and even adulterous relationships within the task force. As the cases, confessions and interrogations pile up, the squad members have only each other as support as they face an uphill battle against both criminals and bureaucracy, and their own lives.
