In this dark and dramatic French crime thriller, a betrayal turns a life-long friendship into a deadly game. Up until they botched the sale of a stolen artwork, Mario, a Frenchman, and Mouss, an African, were the closest of pals and had been together since infancy. During the sale, Mouss inadvertently slays the buyer. He flees the building and Mario returns to the scene to erase the evidence. Unfortunately, he gets caught and sent to jail while Mouss does nothing to help his friend. Twenty years pass and while in prison, Mario plots his murderous vengeance. As soon as he is finally released, he sets off to kill the treacherous Mouss. His every move is followed by a strange young black man who turns out to be Thomas. Thomas claims to be Mario's son and sets about trying to ingratiate himself with the hardened ex-con. Meanwhile Mouss ignores his girl friend's advice and refuses to beg for Mario's forgiveness. Instead he goes off to meet his former friend as an enemy.
