FULL SYNOPSIS

This French political thriller demonstrates that justice does not always win out when faced with a corrupt government system. The setting is modern Paris during a time when it was suffering a series of terrorist attacks. Guyot works for Air France as a hologram engineer. He has a dark and mysterious past. One night while driving close to an airport, his best friend is shot by two policemen for no apparent reason. He takes it to the authorities who claim they acted in self-defense. When he discovers that the only eyewitness, an illegal African immigrant, was hastily deported. Believing that Internal Affairs has launched a biased investigation, Guyot takes off to Africa in search of the witness. He finds him and records his testimony, but while creating a hologram that would prove the killer's identity, he is killed. One honest, but world-weary cop close to retirement, decides to take a stand and crack the case. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi
