Former French policeman Xavier Lombard (Daniel Auteuil) exiled in disgrace and currently living in London makes a living as a private investigator. Lombard takes up a seemingly routine case of finding a rich family's missing drug addict son Leon (Gregory McFarnon). What begins as a straight forward missing persons case for Lombard becomes a personal quest to uncover the truth about Leon's involvement in a child smuggling ring. Lombard undertakes to bring the guilty to justice and his journey takes him to Mexico from where the elusive 'Austrian' runs his empire. A taut, compelling and uncompromising thriller charting one man's fight to end the suffering.
