Synopsis

On a Friday night in January 2006, after Shabbat dinner with his mother (Zabou Breitman) and sister, 23-year-old Ilan Halimi (Syrus Shahidi) receives a phone call. Ilan quickly arranges to meet up with the caller, a beautiful young woman, and is subsequently attacked and kidnapped by a gang. The following afternoon, the Halimi family are sent a harrowing online message demanding a ransom for Ilan's return. Ilan's parents, Ruth and Didier Halimi (played by Zabou Breitman and Pascal Elbé) immediately contact the police. Failing to recognize the anti-Semitism behind the attack, the police treat Ilan's case as a normal kidnapping.
