Brief synopsis

Hamilton and Markov are about to finish five-years of service in the Foreign Legion, and a six-month posting in Afghanistan. During an unauthorised expedition they’re suddenly ambushed by enemy fire and Hamilton is seriously wounded. Markov is dishonourably discharged, despite having saved Hamilton’s life. Later, both end up in Paris. Whilst Hamilton remains in the Foreign Legion, Markov ekes out a meager existence as an illegal immigrant, trying to provide for his young son Khadji. When Markov is killed in an accident, Hamilton feels almost dead but there is Khadji who is very much alive… (http://www.bacfilms.com/international/film/57)
