David (Andre Charpak) is a Jewish survivor of a Nazi concentration camp where his parents were killed when he was a young boy. He is the member of a group that hunts down ex-Nazis and doles out justice for the war crimes they have committed. With the German and French police keeping close tabs on the group, David and his friends break into a modern-day Nazi meeting and kill the ones responsible for his parent's death. His life and history are told in a series of flashbacks, complete with the murder of his parents. David tries to make a go of a normal life, but the painful memories prompt him to seek retribution against the murderous Nazis. He comes full circle -- as a young boy being wanted by the Nazis, to being pursued by international police as an adult.
