Synopsis
In September 2002, three French neofascist 'skinheads' went to a public park in Rheims looking for an 'Arab' to attack when they came across Francois Chenu, a young gay man. When he refused to deny his homosexuality when taunted with gay slurs, he was viciously beaten and thrown unconscious into a pond, where he drowned. Featured are interviews with prosecution and defense lawyers, relatives of the accused, and the parents and sister of the deceased. These intimate discussions reveal the gradual process whereby the family experienced an emotional catharsis, moving from initial shock and grief to an understanding of how the deprived and prejudiced backgrounds of their son's killers generated such violence.
