Following the pattern of a classical Greek tragedy, this first-time drama by director Andre Veraini focuses on a vendetta originating in Corsica and ending in Paris. Accomplished French singing star Charles Aznavour plays Horace, the gentle pacifist who is forced into becoming a tool in the vendetta without ever realizing it. When he finally violates his true nature to commit murder, the real essence of the tragedy is as much his betrayal of himself as the act of killing.
