Samuel Leroy and Billie Vebber are Unit 42, an elite division in charge of the fight against cybercrime. Cops from different schools, which are almost entirely opposed, Sam and Billie will have to solve particularly complex investigations, faced with dark, violent, even perverse criminals. Angular stories, shocking images enjoying an implacable photography.
The music, composed by Thierry Plas and Michel Duprez, was intended to reveal these issues. Moving away from the classical character-by-character approach, the composers’ work focused on emotional situations and issues, trying to open up the viewer’s perceptions more than locking him into one-way feelings. The slightly improbable textures were explored, mixing harsh strings and vintage electro, reflecting the images, situations and psychologies encountered.
