On a morning just like any other a powerful business man, Stanislas Graff (Yvan Attal), is abducted outside his luxurious apartment building by a gang of thugs. From here onwards begins a terrifying ordeal that will last for several weeks.

Despite being tortured and humiliated Graff resists his captors. He is resigned to his fate and doesn't complain. Alone and isolated from the rest of the world, he gleans only snatches of information from his captors. But above all Graff fails to understand why nobody is willing to pay the ransom.

However, on the outside, his world is falling to pieces as details of his personal life are exposed. Everything he had carefully managed to keep private - his affairs, his gambling debts and shady dealings - are uncovered by the police investigation and jumped on by the insatiable media. Ultimately the biggest shock befalls his friends and family who begin to discover that the real Stanislas Graff may not be the man they thought they knew.
