Lyon, the late 1970s.
Police inspector François (Guillaume Canet) learns that his brother, Gabriel (François Cluzet), has been released from prison after serving ten years for murder. There's no happy reunion for the cop and his older brother, but they share a desire to draw a line under the past. Gabriel tries to settle down and François bends over backwards to help him.
But real life and the demons of the past catch up with them. For these two brothers divided by the lives they've chosen but bonded by blood, the paths they follow strangely seem to lead them to the same impasse.
