I Stand Alone | 1999
Violence explodes when an anti-social, self-consumed ex-convict/ex-butcher who's been separated from his only true love--his mentally-deficient daughter--attempts to rebuild his life and enter into society, to no avail. Driven to the edge of madness by his own disgust and annoyance with his petulant pregnant mistress, whom he mainly married for money, his bitterness erupts from rage and results in a brutal attack on both the pregnant wife and his mother-in-law. The ex-butcher is forced to flee and moves back to Paris in an attempt to rebuild his life once again, however he fails to reconnect with friends and can't find a job. Without any money, his only companion is a loaded pistol and his only reason to live becomes revenge and the pursuit of reconnecting with his long-lost daughter whom he has continued to desire.
