In 1950s France, an old peasant patriarch was tried for the murder of a family of British campers. At the time, the case was a cause célèbre all over France. This movie made the old case famous all over again. At the time of his capture, Dominici (Jean Gabin) was adamant that he committed the crime. During the trial, however, he retracted his confession and gave evidence that pointed to his two sons and another person.
