Set in modern day France, it is the story of Pierre Brossard (Michael Caine) who, as a young man, was a war criminal. Brossard has never been brought to trial and has lived a peaceful and anonymous life sheltered by right-wing elements within the Catholic Church. Now, nearly fifty years after his crime, Brossard’s sanctity is being threatened. A new investigation, launched by an ambitious Judge (Tilda Swinton) and a scrupulous Colonel (Jeremy Northam), is seeking to unearth Brossard’s hidden whereabouts. Meanwhile, mysterious assassins are tracking Brossard, determined to kill him before the Judge and Colonel can bring him to justice.
