Between Two Worlds (original title: Ouistreham) was adapted from a book by Florence Aubenas titled Le Quai de Ouistreham (released in 2010 by Editions de l'Olivier publishing house and translated in English as The Night Cleaner).

The film talks about Marianne Winckler (played by Juliette Binoche), a well-known author who goes to live in northern France to research for her new book on the subject of job insecurity. Without revealing her true identity, she gets hired as a cleaner, working with a group of other women. In this new role, she experiences financial instability and social invisibility first-hand. But she also discovers mutual assistance and solidarity, strong bonds shared by these behind-the-scenes working women.

The other members of the cast are non-professional actors playing themselves or people they know.

The movie will be released in theaters during the first half of 2022.
