In 1993, a retired colonel, Raoul Duplan, is shot dead in Paris. Anonymous letters and diary extracts are sent to the police and the army, hinting that the killing is linked to the Algerian war of independence. In 1957, Guy Rossi, a young volunteer recruit, finds himself under Duplan's command. Institutional torture and summary execution are not what Rossi had expected when he enlisted in the French army, but these are the duties Duplan expects him to discharge, for the honour of France...
