A Feature film by Gérard Cuq

Produced by Alizés Films

Release in France : 31/07/2002

    Synopsis

    After celebrating a colleague's birthday, a slightly drunk police detective goes into his bank to ask for his credit card that was just swallowed by the ATM machine. Events are triggered and he ends firing at a security guard escorting a large amount of money. The policeman steals the bags of money, and takes off with his colleagues.
    They try to hide in an isolated hospital and to tend to their wounded snitch, but it's a psychiatric hospital!
    Just when they decide to leave, they realize the building is surrounded by the SWAT team. The deserters use the inmates as hostages. The SWAT leader tries to negotiate but the cops inside know all the tricks and have the patients negotiate for them!
    Hours pass and the patients, deprived of their medication, become uncontrollable. The tension rises inside and outside the building. The protagonists slowly all start losing their minds. A violent assault seems inevitable, but then the tension just floats there like a feeling of Liberty...
