Synopsis: Paris, 2054: a dark motion-captured world of shadows and right angles. Ilona Tasuiev, a brilliant young scientist, is kidnapped, and her employer, Avalon, a major health and beauty corporation, wants her found. Karas, a jaded police captain, is assigned to find her, fast. He seeks help from her sister, Bislane, and they are soon uncovering identify theft, missing files, and hints that something back in 2006 may explain what's going on. Ilona's mentor, Avalon's vice president, a Japanese researcher, an underworld boss, and Bislane's drug connection all figure in the mix. So does an attraction between Karas and Bislane. What's behind the kidnapping? Who's the victim?

I'll never manage to do it!

Faster Farfella!

Come on!


I can't do it, Karas!

I can't do it!


Run away!

I like to be pretty everyday.

I like to be in good shape.

That's why I love Avalon.

With Avalon,

I know I'm beautiful.

And I know I'll remain that way.


for a better world.





We're on your side for life.

I already paid you, didn't I?

Give it to me!

Sorry, beauty.

I've had...

a few extra expenses.


Your sister is with Dimitri.

Don't play this game with me!

You have to pay the price

if you want it!

Let go of her!



Get lost!

What are you doing here?

Good evening, Bislane.

Stop it, Ilona.

What were you doing?

We didn't see you at the office.

Cut out the acting!

When I find you a good job

you could go there at least

They're going to fire you.

How awful!

We can never tell you anything Bislane.

You never talk.

They're waiting for you

at the poorhouse.




Hurry up, we're waiting for you!

Section K, in position.

Hostage in danger!

Fall back.

I don't think so.

Fall back!

Hostage in danger!


Are you crazy?

Is there a problem?

It'll be over soon.

Close your eyes,

..I'll tell you

when you can open them.

Close your eyes.


Let's go!

Amiel, is your wife feeling better?

Whereas I'm away..

..or present,

it's infernal.

I'll be glad when

she'll have the baby.


The prosecutor is waiting

for you outside.

Ilona Tasuiev, one of Avalon's

youngest researcher.

Outstandingly intelligent.

Recruted in Caucasus

when she was 13 years old.

The favourite of vice-president

Paul Dellenbach.

Avalon wants us to find her, find her alive.

Sort things out yourself but

bring her back to me.

Do you actually never talk

or is it...

to stick to your character?

Ilona Tasuiev, this young

promised to a brilliant future,

has been kidnapped

while on her way to help

underprivileged people.

Can Avalon accept this?


We've always considered such acts,

to harm any of our employees,

as a personal attack against

the whole company.

Ilona's sister.

Bislane Tasuiev.

She's working for Avalon,

at the archives.

Ilona saw her...

just before being kidnapped.

It's Dr Muller, her superior,

who gave the alert.

As for the 71,

it's the jungle.

Are you listening?

I'll see her later.

Tell her!

I want to know everything

about her.

Habits, vices, obsessions,

strengths, weaknesses.

Her colleagues, her friends, her lovers.

Avalon must give us her schedules

and her current works.

As well as

the list of her patients.

Put some pressure.

The narcotics will

tip us on the 71.

Without a ransom demand,

we shouldn't neglect any lead:

industrial espionage,

robbery, sexual crime.

The kidnapper bypassed the watchmen

and security cameras.

He's fast,

calculating and organised.

It's not

his first kidnapping.


Check the convicts, the psychopaths

and those released on parole.


Check Ilona's car.

Contact Gavary

and Lionet at the Casbah.

If the car appears somewhere,

they'll know about it.

Is it clear?

We find the girl

then we can rest.

Does anyone know where she went?


Sport shoes, size 38.

Considering the footprints

the kidnapper must weight around 60kg.

A woman.

Or a teenager.

Make a DNA search

on everything we found.

Cigarette butts, various wrappings.

I have some information about Muller.

He was a researcher in genetics for Avalon.

I'm switching to e-call.

When his brother died

he quit everything

to take care of

the underprivileged in an
