Two police officers brought together by separate investigations work to uncover the mystery behind a link between their respective unsolved crimes.

Aging police officer Pierre Niemans investigates an unsolved murder near an upper-crust private school in the Alps, crossing paths with car thief-turned-cop Max Kerkerian when a separate case involving a desecrated grave nearly two hundred miles away brings the pair together by coincidence. The officers work with one another in spite of their clashing dispositions, struggling to unravel the mystery behind an inexplicable link between their cases.
