Omar is not a name one would traditionally connect with French wines. That’s at least what too many of the other local winegrowers think; accordingly, they have tried their worst to get rid of him. Into the midst of this otherwise utterly ordinary bit of xenophobia in action stumble a bunch of South American drug goons, who promptly get themselves killed. The hit-man, physically not in great shape, needs a safe place to hide. Like Omar’s farm.
