In DOWN BY LOVE, life is turned upside down for newly incarcerated Anna (Adéle Exarchopoulos, Blue is the Warmest Color) when she meets Jean (Guillame Gallienne, Yves Saint Laurent), the warden of her detention center. As the pair quickly become immersed in a whirlwind romance, their high stakes relationship leads to grave consequences.
