Tribute to René Vautier

Young pacifists from Brittany are taken to a camp destined to deserters. They end up becoming true killing machines. In April, 1961, they are moved to the Aurès mountains in Algeria where they face the National Liberation Army. They capture a rebel fighter which they shall execute. Their most precious ideals are supposed to become overridden by sheer discipline.
