Premiere of ‘Detectives’


Mathilde is an angry loner who are thoroughly frustrated with state of the world with pollution, poverty, oppression of women, etc. Unfortunately, there is not anyone who shares Mathilde’s frustration – not at her workaholic parents – so after a particularly violent confrontation with a school teacher, Mathilde decides to take matters into their own hands and form a detective agency, “D”. D must help the weak in society and take on the cases that the police do not have the resources or will to.
