During the Algerian War, many poor young Algerians join the French army: they are known as harkis. Salah and Kaddour are two of them, and end up in a unit under the orders of Lt Pascal. The situation in the conflict suggests that Algeria's independence is drawing near, and the harkis face an uncertain fate. Pascal clashes with his superiors in an attempt to have all the men in his unit repatriated to France.
