MADE IN FRANCE
Franco-Algerian freelance journalist Sam decides to use his Muslim roots to infiltrate an Islamic fundamentalist network operating in the Parisian high-rise suburbs. He becomes part of a jihadist cell led by the psychotic and unpredictable Hassan, who is planning a terrorist attack on Paris. INSIDE THE CELL depicts a very timely hot-button topic in the form of a high-octane thriller, and was scheduled for release the week of the Bataclan attacks. Its release was first postponed and then moved to VOD in France.
