Written by Julien Paolini, Manolis Mavropoulos and Syrus Shahidi, the story takes place in the Parisian district of Château Rouge. Angelo, an idealistic cop racked with guilt for an accidental murder he committed but did not confess to, seeks redemption in any way possible, throwing himself body and soul, and potentially dangerously, into solving some minor shenanigans in his new neighborhood…

Shot in three weeks, Karma is produced by Julien Paolini and Syrus Shahidi on behalf of La Réserve and by Marie Etchegoyen and Yann Girard for Cousins ​​Et Dépendances, in co-production with Sugar Mama Productions, the films of Carly and Dinosaures. Distribution in France and international sales are being negotiated.
