Full Plot

Joe Martin, a quiet American, lives a quiet life in the South of France renting boats to tourists. He is happily married to Fabienne and has a twelve-year-old daughter named Michle. But the quiet man has a past: ten years before, Joe (then Moran) had escaped with four other convicts, among whom the sadistic ex-mercenary Katanga. Seeing the latter brutally kill an M. P., Joe had abandoned his accomplices and left with the car. One night, Captain Ross, Katanga, Whitey and Fausto re-appear.. Guy Bellinger Plot not found

Joe Martin: And you and Michelle. What will you do while I'm away? Fabienne Martin: We'll wait. Joe Martin: Like Hell. I wait! Captain Ross: This is a stomach wound; stomach wounds bleed internally. Katanga: I know what a stomach wound is! Captain Ross: Do you know how many pints of blood a man has? He has ten pints, and mine's pumpin' out, slowly but steadily, at an estimated rate of four pints per hour. Therefore, in another hour, I will have lost consciousness and finally "check out."
