Alain Marecaux, a hard-working family man, is taken from his bed by police one night, together with his wife, Edith. Both are accused of being part of a ring of child molesters in Northern France and neighboring Belgium and are locked away, while their three young children are placed in foster homes. Husband and wife and more than a dozen others were accused by Mrs. Badaoui, who said she herself was guilty as well. But the Marecauxs had never even heard of the woman. Though he insists on his innocence from the start, Alain is treated by law enforcers as scum. The weight of the accusations alone are enough for Marecaux to be forced to sell his business and the family home. He hears that his wife, who is released earlier, has taken up with another man and that his eldest son has tried to commit suicide. Stuck in legal limbo with no one willing to listen to him except his lawyer, Marecaux finally starts a hunger strike -- after his own failed suicide attempt -- to try to attract the attention of those higher up on the judiciary ladder.
