On the edge of a crumbling city, 11-year-old Alexander (Jeremy Chabriel) lives in a sequestered commune alongside other children, their mothers, and charismatic leader, Gregori (Vincent Cassel). Gregori teaches the children how to raise livestock, grow vegetables, work as a community – and how to kill. With the birth of a new baby brother weighing on his mind, Alexander begins to question Gregoriâ€™s overpowering influence on the children and their training to become assassins. Threatened by his increasing unwillingness to fall in line, Gregoriâ€™s behavior turns erratic and adversarial toward the child he once considered a son. With the two set dangerously at odds and the communeâ€™s way of life disintegrating, the residents fear a violent resolution is at hand in this Sundance award-winning thriller.
