The protagonist Louis leaves with his wife and child in Thailand away from the gangster wars of Marseille . One day he learns that his entire large family was destroyed by rivals, and soon the assassins get to his wife, but he and his daughter manage to leave. Full of anger and thirst for revenge, Louis is sent to Marseille to bring to justice those responsible for the death of his family.
When working on the painting "Jump of an Angel" Yves Boisse, as has happened more than once in his career, has been confronted with unspoken and direct censorship . Filming on the Cote d'Azur was impeded by both official and criminal circles. According to film critic Mikhail Trofimenkov , “the Marseille police and local criminals simultaneously warned Boisset that they did not want to see the film crew in“ their “city. The group had to get out of Nice under pressure from the corrupt mayor Jacques Medsen. ” At the request of the censors, episodes unfolding on the background of the wall with the inscription “Medsen - scum” were removed from the film.
