Raf and Julie, a couple on the verge of breaking up, find themselves in an emergency ward bordering on collapse on the evening of a Parisian Yellow Vest protest. Their encounter with Yann, an angry and injured demonstrator, will shatter each person’s certainties and prejudices.
Romantic resentment and social unrest amusingly collide in Catherine Corsini’s combative comedy where an emergency room doubles as a microcosm of French society. A prescient farce that ingeniously weaves personal and political discontent, The Divide is an acerbic diagnosis of our modern maladies.
