An American (Charles Bronson) living in France must face his past when his wife and daughter are kidnapped by former fellow convicts turned narco-dealers he once double-crossed.
The film was known for an extended car chase with an Opel Commodore GS/E I6 involving the Bronson character's attempt to get a doctor to a wounded drug dealer in exchange for his wife.
Actress Liv Ullmann complained in an interview that Charles Bronson was rude to her and her daughter during the filming. She claims that he returned her child to her when she wandered to his table and admonished her by saying "Please keep your child to yourself."
