    • France, summer of 1870: The country is suffering its third year of drought. Harvest is scarce. Food is missing. Famine is plaguing the villages. France is stuck in a costly war against Germany. Using desperate measures, the old royalist regime is forcing its youngest and poorest population to enroll in the army.

      People are getting hungrier and angrier by the minute.

      On Bastille Day July the 14th, in a small village of Dordogne, what is a supposed to be a big day of celebration is going to turn into a nightmare. A drunken crowd of men women and children assault the local rich man and blame him for their misery: beaten, tortured, he will be burned alive...
