) with contributions from the director, the screenplay centres around Antoine Roca, an ordinary man who risks losing his business and stages a scam which turns into the heist of the century. Caught up in a life of crime, he must deal with betrayal, murder and score settling. A plot inspired by a real-life case from 2008-2009 of VAT fraud on carbon emission quotas, which the Court of Auditors described as "the scam of the century".

Produced by Les Films Manuel Munz, Carbone is being co-produced by EuropaCorp and Belgian company Nexus Factory, and has been pre-purchased by OCS and Ciné+. Distribution in France will be handled by EuropaCorp on 1 November 2017.
