Plot – Spoilers:
The young daughter of a successful surgeon Hamel is raped and murdered while out distributing invitations to her upcoming birthday party. Though the killer is found within a week, Hamel just can’t get over the brutal loss, especially when he feels there was an outside chance he might have been able to prevent it.
So before the killer Lemaire can be produced in court, Hamel decides that justice served by the law is just not good enough…
7 days is a wonderfully exhausting experience in revenge and its effects on the perpetrator and throws up confusing questions about morals and principles.
