At first glance, Gregoire, Nawelle, Sabine and Chloe have nothing in common - except for the fact that they were victims of crime. Now they voluntarily take part in a victim-offender dialogue program in which they meet criminals who are in prison for their crimes. For both sides, an emotional and difficult journey begins in which it takes courage, inner trust and friendship to overcome resentment - and perhaps find ways to conquer the shadows of the past.

Are prisons the right way to achieve long-term reconciliation between offenders and victims on an individual level, where "punishment" is not the guiding principle? What alternatives are there to punishment and prison in order to react as a society to injustice that has occurred? Where do the needs of the victims come first, or prevention?

In All Your Faces, Jeanne Herry's film deals with restorative justice, a program in France in which victims and perpetrators of similar crimes can enter into a dialogue. "I would like to understand the offenders," says one of the victims - "I would like to understand the victims," replies one of the offenders. Victims and offenders meet and talk in a circle of chairs.
