After his release from prison, Marcel is pursued by two corrupt policemen who are after the money and cocaine that Marcel stashed before his arrest.  They use his ex-girlfriend as a means of putting pressure on him.  But the dealer has a different problem: his father Albert is terminally ill.  Parallel to the violent confrontations in the twilight world of the city, a sensitive convergence takes place between father and son.  Increasingly, the thriller becomes a family drama.  Albert has one last wish Marcel would like to fulfill: the pair set out on a hunting expedition – at the zoo.
