Marion Laine

Born in Voiron, France, Marion Laine studied literature before getting into cinema. She wrote and directed several well noticed short films, the fictions Le fil d'Ariane and Ce soir-là, and the feature films Un coeur simple (A simple heart) and A coeurouvert (A monkey on my shoulder). She also collaborated on the screenplays of several films, including Jalil Lespert's Des vents contraires (Headwinds). Voir le jour (Into the world) is her third feature film.


Jeanne works as an auxiliary in a maternity in Marseille. Day and night, Jeanne and her colleagues fight to help mothers and their babies against the lack of staff and constant management pressure. Jeanne lives with her 18 year-old daughter, Zoé. When a tragedy occurs at the maternity and Zoé leaves to study in Paris, Jeanne’s secret past suddenly resurfaces and forces her to assert her life choices.
