Martyrs

A Feature film by Pascal Laugier

Produced by Eskwad

Release in France : 03/09/2009

    Synopsis

    France, at the beginning of the 1970s.

    Lucie, a little ten-year-old girl, who disappeared a few months before our story begins, is found wandering down a road. Her mistreated body bears no traces of sexual abuse. The reasons behind her abduction remain mysterious.
    Traumatized, withdrawn, she is put in a hospital where she forms a friendship with Anna, a girl her age.

    Fifteen years later, there is a knock on a family’s door. The father of this ordinary family opens the door and finds himself fact to face with Lucie, who is armed with a hunting rifle. Convinced she has found the people who abused her, she starts shooting.
