A documentary detailing the consequences of the Algerian War for two groups: the harkis, native Algerians who served on the side of France for diverse reasons, and the pieds noirs, colonists of European descent. Neither were welcome in independent Algeria, and they faced a choice grimly phrased as "the suitcase or the coffin." The film includes numerous interviews performed in France, Algeria, and elsewhere.
