A former Tamil warrior in Sri Lanka finds himself having to make an exit after coming out on the wrong side of a civil war.

They find themselves in Paris, struggling to find a life and home but even after finally settling into some sense of normalcy, violence still finds them and the man finds the warrior still inside will have to come out to protect those he has come to love. -- Chris Kavan
