Synopsis / Plot
Auguste Maroilleur sits at the head of a family of traditional French farmers on a piece of land in Normandy. He lives with his two daughters and their husbands, to whom he intends to pass on his farm when he dies. He is outraged when he discovers that his grandson Henri is mixed up with a band of drug smugglers who are using his farm as a hiding place for illegal drugs. When one of the drug dealers appears on his land, Auguste kills him in cold blood. In revenge, the dead man’s comrades attack the farm, killing the livestock and raping Auguste’s granddaughter. The old landowner refuses to bring in the police. This is one war he intends to win by himself...
