Perhaps intending to make a point that criminals have their own code of justice, this undistinguished prison drama by director Jean-Paul Sassy revolves around the experiences of a new inmate. As is usually the case, there is a shakedown to see where he fits in the hierarchy, and the current top honcho singles him out for harassment. The rough treatment continues in spite of the fact that the persecuted man stands his ground, no matter what. Whether due to his attitude or the discovery that he is innocent, or both, his tormentors begin to rethink their tactics.
