Written by the director together with François Decodts, the story revolves around a thirty-year-old woman who is forced to go back and live at her mother’s house. For lack of a job, she agrees to work for one of her uncles at a kennel that turns out to be the nerve centre for a dog-trafficking operation that deals in animals from Eastern Europe. Interestingly, the project went through the Ateliers d'Angers.

Produced by Dominique Besnehard and Michel Feller for Paris-based outfit Mon Voisin Productions, Je suis un soldat is co-produced by Hubert Toint for Belgian firm Saga Film. Having been pre-purchased by Canal+ and Ciné+, the feature is also backed by the CNC’s advance on receipts and the Eurimages fund. Distribution in France and international sales will be handled by Le Pacte

On 24 September, Mon Voisin Productions will be bringing out Brèves de comptoir by Jean-Michel Ribes (Diaphana Distribution) in theatres and will begin shooting the TV series 10%, by Cédric Klapisch, for France 2 at the end of November.
