A searing and full-bodied political epic in which director/writer/producer/editor and star Mathieu Kassovitz (“La Haine”) turns his focus to an incident that occurred in 1988 in the French colony of New Caledonia. Philippe Legorjus is an elite counter-terrorism captain flown in with 300 men when a group of indigenous Kanak separatists take 30 French police hostage. The rebels demand independence, and the captain has 10 days to negotiate. But with the army treating the crisis as a war on hostile soil, and an election in France rapidly approaching, Legorjus is confronted with a situation that will push his own morality to the brink.
