Among a group of highly disciplined French Foreign Legion soldiers stationed on the coast of Djibouti, latent tensions abound when their officious sergeant becomes jealous of the commanding officer’s attention to a younger, charismatic (and better-looking) new recruit. As the sergeant devises a sinister ploy to discredit the young man, tragedy unfolds.
