Bruno Hamel is a 38-year-old surgeon who lives in Drummondville with his wife, Sylvie, and their eight-year-old daughter Jasmine. Like many happy people, Bruno leads an uneventful life until a beautiful fall afternoon, when his daughter is raped and murdered.
From then on, the world of the Hamel family collapses.
When the alleged murderer is arrested, a terrible plan forms in Bruno’s darkened mind: he plans to capture the “monster” and make him pay for his crime.
The day the suspect appears in court, Hamel – who has prepared his plan in great detail – kidnaps him and later sends the police a brief message stating that the rapist and murderer of his daughter will be tortured for seven days and then be executed. Only once this task is accomplished will Bruno give himself up.
