In New York, French man Thomas is the helpless witness of the murder of a man and woman by Gino Longa. Afraid of reprisals, he returns to the native village he had fled a few years before.

Claude Mulot is mostly known as the director of some classics from the golden age of french porn like Le Sexe qui parle, La Femme objet ou Les Petites écolières, all signed under the alias Frédéric Lansac. Less known are his attempts at genre movies like the gothic La Rose Ecorchée (The Blood Rose), the giallesque Le Couteau sous la Gorge or La Saignée, reminiscent of Serge Leroy's The Track. A fine gem, superbly restored.
