DECLARATION OF WAR
Based on real-life events experienced by filmmaker Valerie Donzelli and co-star/writer Jeremie Elkaim, DECLARATION OF WAR tells the powerful but life-affirming story of a young Parisian couple suddenly dragged from their carefree existence by an unexpected twist of fate, and their against-the-odds determination to defy it.
Beautiful Juliette (Donzelli) and dashing Romeo (Elkaïm) are two insouciant souls whose electric first encounter and rapid storybook romance is quickly followed by the birth of a child. But their lives are transformed overnight when a visit to their paediatrician results in a stunning verdict: their infant son Adam is seriously ill.
As unexpected as this news is, Juliette & Romeo accept the battle head on, and with the support of their families, friends and dedicated public healthcare workers (many playing themselves), end up revealing their strengths, weaknesses, fears and secrets to each other, as well as the world.
