After the capitulation of France in June 1940, a new battle began: between those French people who had resisted the Germans and those who collaborated. Based on hundreds of fascinating documents, photographs, letters and files relating to the cleansing of France, covering five years of occupation, this film explores the extraordinary fates of some forgotten fighters. Resistance hotheads, pro-Nazi fanatics or opportunistic gangsters, these people who have been left out of official histories engaged in a fight to the death, a fight that left more than 100,000 victims and which will always poison our memory.
