After the 1961 uprisings during the Algerian War, a deserter of the French Foreign Legion is enlisted by the OAS (Organisation Armée Secrète), a paramilitary group that opposed Algerian Independence often by using terrorist attacks. He agrees to kidnap a lawyer representing nationalists, but he soon falls in love with her.
