Storyline

Bill Baker, an oil worker from Stillwater, Oklahoma, travels to Marseille, France, to see his daughter Allison, who is five years into a nine-year jail sentence. Allison was convicted of murdering her roommate and unfaithful lover, Lina while attending university in Marseille.

Allison asks Bill to pass a note to her defense counsel, Mrs. Leparq, at their first meeting. Bill locates Leparq, who informs him that the letter claims Allison received information from a former professor about a man claiming to be Lina’s killer. Because the new material is only hearsay, Leparq refuses to reopen the case. Bill deceives Allison by claiming that Leparq will ask the judge to revisit the case.

At his hotel, Bill meets a woman named Virginie and her daughter Maya. He requests that Virginie translate the note. Bill seeks out the professor mentioned in the note, who provides him with the phone number of someone claiming to know Lina’s killer. Bill and Virginie visit with the woman, who identifies Akim as the assailant.

Virginie and her pal print images of people in Allison and Lina’s social circles after combing through social media. Allison recognizes Akim after Bill shows her the images. Bill then uses the photo to locate down Akim to a housing project, but he is defeated by Akim’s pals, and Akim manages to flee. Bill admits to Allison the next time they meet that he lied about Leparq agreeing to help and that he found Akim but didn’t alert the cops. Allison warns Bill to never return to the prison, enraged that he squandered her one chance for exoneration.

Bill has stayed in Marseille for four months, renting a room in Virginie’s apartment and working on a construction team. Bill reconnects with Allison on her one day out of prison that year, and their regular visits resume. Bill and Virginie form a connection as well. Bill catches Akim at an Olympique de Marseille game with Maya and follows him in his truck after the game. Bill approaches Akim, slaps him, and locks him in the basement of Virginie, Maya, and Bill’s apartment building. Maya is urged by Bill to preserve the secret.

Bill inquires about the Stillwater necklace that he gave Allison before she left for Marseille when Allison and Bill return to Oklahoma to a hero’s welcome. Allison breaks down and admits that she paid Akim to evict Lina from their home after they broke up, but that she did not want for Lina to die, claiming that Akim misinterpreted her intentions to “make her go out” due to her poor command of the French language at the time. Allison claims everything looks the same in Stillwater the next morning as they sit on the porch, while Bill acknowledges everything looks different to him.
