Marseille, 1975. Young investigating magistrate Pierre Michel arrives with his wife and children in a city riddled with organised crime. He sets to work tackling the French Connection, a mafia organisation that exports heroin around the world. Despite protests from his family and colleagues, he sets his own safety aside to embark on a personal crusade against Gaëtan Zampa, the iconic underworld figure and untouchable godfather of the French Connection. But as he delves deeper into the case, Pierre releases his old methods no longer apply.
