By law, the hospital has twelve days to bring each patient before a judge. Based on medical records and a doctor’s recommendations, a crucial decision has to be made: Will the patient stay or leave? Legendary filmmaker-photographer Raymond Depardon has been granted access to these hearings and, for the first time, captures these extraordinary encounters between justice and psychiatry, giving voice to the voiceless.
