Synopsis

In 1979, with the launch of Action Directe, France follows the path of its German and Italian neighbors with the emergence of domestic terrorist violence which culminates with the murders of Army General Audran in 1985 and of the chairman of Renault in 1986.

The following year, the 4 leaders of the movement are arrested and sentenced to life in prison. According to the media, they were targeting the symbols of capitalism but none of the victims had the profile of a free marketeer.

This film sheds a new light on the bloody trajectory of this mysterious organisation.
