Synopsis by Sandra Brennan
Neo-Naziism in modern France provides the framework for this evocative French drama based on a true story. The story begins in prison as Roland Resse is being beaten to a pulp by his peers. Resse's crime is not initially mentioned. How he came to be there provides the basis for the film. Resse was a shy and awkward boy when he went to a rural village in responds to a want-ad for farm hands. He is hired for a trial period by Madame Dietrich who sends him to Madame Martine to rent a room. Madame Martin attempts to help Resse become more sure of himself. Resse is a loner though and it is only after Dietrich demands he eat with the other help that he joins their table. He is a devout vegetarian. Roger becomes his friend. Roger is a racist who suggests Resse keep his opinions secret. Resse is eventually inducted into a nearby chapter of Neo-Nazis where he finds work.
