The second feature film from actress-turned-filmmaker Jeanne Herry (Number 1 Fan), In Safe Hands throws us deep into the milieu of the French social assistance services where the fate of one baby boy exposes the conflicting conundrums faced by many women – those giving up their babies and those desperate to have their own.
