The father, a chef with a mysterious past, is aided by three thugs in a relentless persecution. To took a liking to Alain Delon for the project, but he finally decided on Johnny Hallyday, rocker, movie star and French national hero.

Two myths behind and in front of the camera for a movie that, from its start, composes sequences to go down in legend.
Born in Hong Kong, co-founder of the Milkyway Image Production Company, a Sitges regular and an essential name in contemporary action movies, he’s directed seminal works like Breaking News (04), Election (05) or Vengeance (09).
