Cassandre, a directionless young woman, embarks on a new career as a flight attendant. Julie Lecoustre and Emmanuel Marre deliver a truthful portrayal of a young woman enveloped in chaos: crushed by her flight schedule, trying to forget about sorrow, and dreaming about Dubaï. In contrast to the romantic depiction of fictionalized stewardesses, Zero F*cks Given is a bitingly realistic portrayal.
