Though his father is a collaborator, and the Germans have wrought havoc in his part of southern France, Perret (Philippe Leotard) wants nothing to do with either side in the war. In this French World War II action/adventure Perret is forced to kill a German in self-defense, so that his desire to remain neutral becomes irrelevant; by necessity he joins up with a resistance group. At first he does as little as he decently can, but gradually he transforms into a committed partisan. This, even though his new comrades are dying in great numbers around him.
