After fathering a child, Bruno stumbles onto a path towards crime and punishment.

In their latest feature, THE CHILD, Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne continue to show less favoured individuals struggling to cope and survive under harsh conditions. Bruno, who has been living on his girlfriend welfare money and small-time theft, finds himself struggling with the forthcoming responsibility of fathering a child. Their prospects seem filled with obstacles, and Bruno, in an impulsive act, makes a choice that leads him into a downward spiral of crime and punishment. THE CHILD won the Golden Palm at the Cannes Festival this year.
