Plot Summary

Laborie is a high-flying officer in the French special forces. Her mission is to escort Abedin Nexhep, a godfather of the Albanian mafia. Charged with heading a wide-reaching prostitution network, this formidable criminal is due to stand trial before a European court. During the transfer, killers hired by Nexhep set up an ambush to free their boss but Laborie and her men manage to escape. After a frantic chase, the officers seek refuge, with their prisoner, in a warehouse located in the heart of an industrial park. There they meet up with a gang that has come to steal computer material. Meanwhile, Nexhep's killers surround the warehouse? Written by Anonymous

Goofs When Martial uses the remote to turn the Liebherr telescopic crane, you can see the jib attached to the right side of the boom. Seconds later, when he extends the boom, the jib is attached to the front of the boom. Aside from the necessary time and space, it is not possible for only one person to attach the jib. See more »
