Mathieu and Anna are the parents of a girl (Fantine Harduin) who suffers from a genetic disorder forcing her to live in a hermetic box that filters the air. This already vulnerable existence becomes even more precarious on the day Paris is hit by an earthquake, and then filled with a mysterious toxic gas that seems to come from below ground. Only those hiding on the higher floors and rooftops of buildings survive, but they are left stranded, without any resources. Wanting to check that their daughter remains safe in her “bubble”, Mathieu and Anna will have to face the fog (la Brume). This France/Canada coproduction is a large-scale, full-fledged disaster movie taking place in a suddenly apocalyptic Paris. Dans la Brume was selected to open the 2018 Fantasia Film Festival in Montréal. In French with English subtitles.
