Closing Film

Rochebrune is on the edge of chaos. Johnny, leader of the town’s protest movement, has disappeared after robbing a van. When Paul Ligre learns the news, he returns to the town where he grew up, to find his childhood friend before the police do. But Anna Werner’s investigation inevitably leads her to the secret that unites Paul and Johnny…
