In a provincial suburb, three neighbors fall victim to the pitfalls of new technology and social media. Marie (Blanche Gardin) loses the respect of her son over a sex tape, Bertrand’s (Denis Podalydès) daughter is bullied online, and Christine’s (Corinne Masiero) Uber ratings are refusing to take off. With the help of a genuine hacker, they resolve to fight the evil empires of contemporary life—the Big Tech companies.
“‘Delete History,’ is a hilarious analysis of the terrible world we live in.” — Boyd Van Hoeij, The Hollywood Reporter
