Marseille. 1975. Pierre Michel, a young magistrate who’s moved south from Metz with his wife and children, is appointed a judge of organized crime. He decides to attack The Connection, a gangster organization that exports heroin throughout the world. Taking no heed of warnings, Judge Michel sets out alone against Gaëtan Zampa, an emblematic figure of the crime world and a boss whose position and contacts make him untouchable. But the judge rapidly comes to realize that, to get results, he must change his methods.

Synopsis: Cain is a survivor. In a ravaged, post-apocalyptic world, that is all he knows and is. Having walked many roads, he has come by many survivors, and in the road he walks now it is no different. He comes by another. Thinking it to be just another stand-off, an unexpectedly chilling encounter ensues.
