    Synopsis

    Paul Varlin is driving to his holiday destination with his wife Hélène and their young daughter Patty. On the way, Varlin gets into a fierce argument with a group of motorcyclists. The latter take their revenge by violently attacking Varlin’s car. When he regains consciousness, Varlin discovers that both his wife and his daughter have been raped and murdered.
