In 1962, members of the OAS (Organisation de l'ArmTe secrFte - Organization of the Secret Army), led by General Clavet (Jean Rochefort - Innocents with Dirty Hands; the Hairdresser's Husband; PrOt-a-Porter), steal weapons and rob banks in their efforts to free General Challe from Tulle Prison. The Police assign Paraux (Raymond Pellegrin - Le Deuzieme Souffle) to assist Police Chief Lelong (Michel Bouquet - the Unfaithful Wife) in tracking them down. Despite having men on the inside of the Police, Clavet may be losing control of some of his factions, as terrorist acts begin to play a part. With the Algerian War as a backdrop, the Conspiracy (Le Complot) is a classic spy tale based on true events, ripe with espionage and double-crosses! Also Starring Michel Duchaussoy (This Man Must Die; Mesrine).
