Georges (Thierry Fremont) is a juvenile Nazi collaborator who agrees to gather information on others in France in exchange for the authorities forgiving his own transgressions. Rove (Andre Dussolier) is the intelligence officer who trains Georges in his quest to hunt down Nazi war criminals. Liberation judges demand full sentences for the small-time collaborators while allowing the bigger fish to escape, and other Nazis are allowed to be recruited by the United States, as political pressures move towards a communist witch hunt. Conveniently overlooked once again is the historical fact that only a small minority in France were actively involved in the heroic resistance movement against the Nazis.
