Violence, corruption and suppression are the order of the day in the city of Marseilles. Only the “Five Fingers” take the risk of rebellion. When one of the children kills a police officer, he flees. The outlaw Tau returns 20 years later to find that much has changed. The “Five Fingers” hold all the city’s high positions and the city is ruled by a dark shadow. The dark despot wants Tau out of the city and is ready to fill the land with blood to do so.
Apocalyptic thriller? Western? Horror film? All of the above and so much more. This film is a dark and rough neo-western that you don’t see every day. Yeah!
