Trailer for Borderline (Une pure affaire).

David and Christine could not possibly be more ordinary. They exist in the most frustrating of middle class existences. David must come to grips with the fact that he may never make partner at his law firm while Christine gets fired for disrespecting her boss. On top of all that, they are becoming increasingly incapable of connecting with their children and their debt is mounting. While walking their dog in the park, David is almost run down by a man fleeing from the police. When he finds the man’s bag in the bushes, the nefarious contents have him contemplating a new life strategy. But even if he’s able to survive his wife’s ire when she finds out, the two of them must still contend with the sudden return of the bag’s original owner.

Borderline is the quintessential fish-out-of-water story. It is a farce detailing how two people who could not be further removed from the criminal lifestyle bumble their way through severely criminal activity. The humor comes from the fact that somehow, beyond all logical assumption, these two turn out to be quite adept at selling drugs. Their white-collar, overly professional approach to peddling cocaine strikes a chord with their clientele and their returns are massive. But what is truly hilarious is the sudden spring in their steps as their success in their illegal enterprise endows them with a sense of pride and confidence the likes of which they haven’t experienced in years.

The comedy is tempered with suspense as the gangster owner of the cocaine shows up and threatens their newfound lifestyle; as well as their lives in general. If they thought their bosses were intense before… Can these two suburban dealers regain their humdrum existence before they lose everything?
