SYNOPSIS

As he does every year, police chief Paul Bellamy spends his vacation at the family estate of his wife Françoise, despite her dreams of sailing the seven seas on a cruise ship… Paul cannot live without Françoise, but he hates to travel. And this year, he has two excuses to stay put: the unexpected arrival of his half-brother Jacques, a
rambling fellow with a drinking problem, and a man on the run who shows up, demanding Bellamy’s protection. Paul ends up giving them much of his time and efforts. His natural investigative curiosity finds much to contend with, while his position as older brother will be faced with additional challenges…
