Synopsis

After France fell to Germany in 1940, the Vichy regime was set up under Marshal Petain. In 1943, the Vichy government created a military force called the Milice to carry out the orders of the Nazi occupiers. When the war was over, many of those involved were prosecuted for war crimes. Some got away. A few rose to power.

At 5:00 am on June 29, 1944, in Rillieux-la-Pape, France, seven Jews were executed. Many years later, the Nazi sympathizer (Michael Caine) who was responsible for their deaths is living a quiet life in southern France when a new investigation is launched. He finds himself the target of a famous Nazi hunter (Tilda Swinton).
