gets a new look !
Pascal Manise is a cop. He has no scruples. They went by the board a long time ago, because Pascal has a problem: the woman he loves is a drug addict.
Agnès was already on drugs when they first met. Pascal couldn't stop her habit. All he could do was spare her from decline, from the squalid side of a junky life, from death on credit.
Pascal has an agreement with Jaquillat, a dealer in Grenoble, who supplies him with morphine in exchange for Pascal's blindness to certain goings on. Thanks to this, Agnès has been able to carry on working, living an almost normal life.
Almost, because the couple have built a barrier between their respective worlds. They never go out together. Pascal doesn't know Agnès' friends and colleagues and she doesn't know his. Until the day Agnès introduces him to her friend, Cécile, who is having problems with her husband, Alain. While investigating Alain, Pascal draws closer to Cécile and falls in love with her. Cécile is unaware of his feelings for she's still in love with her husband. If Pascal wants to seduce her, he must begin by destroying the bonds between Cécile and Alain. But to be loved, one must love oneself at least a little and Pascal no longer does. He's made too many compromises, carried out too many nasty, little jobs.
Bruno Le Roux, an escaped prisoner, may be the path to Pascal's redemption - at least to the latter's own way of thinking. Jacquillat also wants to get his hands on Le Roux. He orders Pascal to kill him. Pascal refuses and Jacquillat turns off the dope mainline.
Agnès needs a hit. For the first time in fifteen years she's got to go and buy a dose. But no dealer wants to sell to the wife of a cop. She holds up a dealer who knocks her around. It's pathetic, more than a guy lurking in the shadows can stand. Le Roux steps out to defend her...
