The investigative thriller La Syndicaliste (The Sitting Duck) (2023) is set against the backdrop of political intrigue and nuclear power. The film is based on the true life of Isabelle Huppert's character Maureen Kearney, a prominent union representative at a significant French multinational nuclear corporation. With her adeptness at maneuvering through the highest levels of the political and financial spheres, Maureen's life abruptly changes when she comes out as a whistleblower. She unearths hidden global transactions, exposing startling facts that upend the French nuclear industry. Her battle to uncover the scam and save thousands of jobs against powerful people in the government and business takes a terrifying turn when she is viciously sexually attacked at home-an act that appears to be related to her efforts to raise awareness of the issue. Complexities that surface during the assault inquiry make investigators and attorneys distrust Maureen's involvement, viewing her as more than just a victim but possibly a suspect. Maureen finds herself in a world with few supporters, having to fight to defend herself against strong opponents and a problem of trust.
