Abstract

Based on the acclaimed novel by Roger Vercel, this film explores ideas of civilization and humanity during and after World War I. Conan leads a band of former military prisoners who violently attack both enemy and civilian alike during and after the war. His friend Norbert must prosecute them for their crimes, prompting Norbert to question man's capacity for violence and war's capacity to provide it an acceptable outlet.
