DOG ON TRIAL / LE PROCÈS DU CHIEN / НАРОД ПРОТИ КОСМО

2024 / 83' / France

Attorney Avril constantly takes on admirable but difficult cases that are impossible to win. Just as she decides it's time to find a "winning case," a charming dog named Cosmo and "his human" – the eccentric Darius – show up at her office. Cosmo has bitten people three times, which means he is to be put down. However, Cosmo's case turns out to be much more complicated and important for the people around him.
