Abstract

This French New Wave drama reveals the political instability that engulfed France during the Algerian War of Independence. A son of an industrialist joins a right-wing, nationalist terrorist organization (loosely resembling the OAS) but is soon betrayed when he attempts to assassinate a communist politician. The failed assassination forces him and his wife to flee Paris to hide-out with his pacifist childhood friend. His wife and friend fall in love when he leaves to avenge his betrayal.
