EN - Jean has always been very vigilant. However, due to his age and the combination of hallucinations, violent anger attacks and the never-ending craving for painkillers from his former addiction, cautiousness has escalated into paranoia. Continuously wary of the police, Jean fears that somebody might hurt his family - not just the law but also XTC rivals. Losing his once firm grip on his business, reality and himself, Jean decides to bow out of the business. Because of his overly ambitious son Vital and his old friend Marlon, who was recently released from jail, this proves harder than he thought it would be. Additionally, Jean’s guilt-based love for undercover agent Erwin, who reminds him of his deceased son, blinds him to the fact that the real threat hides within his own clan.
