Sebastian Zöllner, jeune critique d'art ambitieux mais dans une situation très précaire, convainc son éditeur de lui financer un voyage pour aller rencontrer Manuel Kaminski, un peintre dont la renommée égalait les plus grands artistes du XX siècle et qui vit reclus dans les Alpes depuis qu'il est devenu aveugle. Zöllner fait le pari que vu l'âge très avancé de Kaminski, ce dernier n'a forcément plus longtemps encore à vivre.

Un capitaine de police, le capitaine Bénita, et la jeune commissaire Valère fragilisée par la disparition tragique de sa jeune sœur vont être confrontés à 3 meurtres dont celui d'un syndicaliste connu, "le périgourdin". Le modus operandi des crimes reste mystérieux. Après plusieurs recherches, devant ce mode opératoire qui les laisse, lui et sa jeune commissaire, d'abord perplexes, il reconnaît et trouve des similitudes avec des rituels maçonniques. Ils vont donc enquêter dans les milieux des différentes obédiences de la Franc-maçonnerie, ou règne le culte du secret. Commence donc une enquête difficile qui va les mener à découvrir que des personnes essayent d'influer sur l'enquête, dont des maçons noyautant la hiérarchie policière et siégeant au sein d'un comité des 9. Bien vite les soupçons des enquêteurs se portent sur un groupuscule de skinheads néo-nazis, prétendument financés par un descendant américain du militant antimaçonnique Jules Guérin, fondateur du Grand Occident de France et protagoniste de l'affaire dite du Fort Chabrol. Une perquisition dans leurs locaux conduit à un échange de coup de feu, mais leur arrestation n'est pas probante, tout comme celle de leur bailleur de fonds présumé. L'enquête se poursuit sur un conseiller ministériel ayant fondé une fraternelle maçonnique crapuleuse dans les années 1970 et ayant été radié de son ordre pour ces faits.

The film opens with a quotation from the Book of Psalms, Psalm 82:6–7: "I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High. But ye shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes." The monks' peaceful routine of prayer, medical assistance, and community interaction is soon interrupted by the threat of an Islamic fundamentalist group. When their elected leader, Christian (Lambert Wilson), declines the protection of the corrupt civil authority, the monks divide amongst themselves on the question of whether to stay or flee Algeria. Before a decision is reached, a group of fundamentalists, led by Ali Fayattia, enters the monks' compound in force on Christmas Eve and demands their doctor and his medical supplies. Christian refuses their requests and cites the Quran as proof of the monks' goodwill. With a mixture of surprise and respect, Fayattia leaves the compound and grants it his protection until his capture, torture and death at the hands of government forces. Despite the growing danger, the monks come to consensus on the moral importance of maintaining their committed lives with, and ministry to, the local population, even when faced with violence and death. Ultimately, the terrorists seize most of the monks during a nighttime raid and hold them hostage. As the captive monks trudge a snowy path towards a grim fate, the film concludes with the spiritual testament of prior Christian de Chergé, bravely written in the face of death.

Deux ans après avoir démissionné de la police, Michaël Lombardi (Éric Cantona), un ancien flic est présent sur les lieux du crime d'un riche homme d'affaires. Tout l'accuse et il décide de prendre la fuite. Il se retrouve traqué par ses anciens collègues (dont son frère), accusé à tort du meurtre de plusieurs notables qu'il soupçonne fortement d'être les commanditaires de l'assassinat de ses parents et de plusieurs autres personnes par des tueurs professionnels 26 ans plus tôt (une affaire restée non résolue malgré des années de procédure et le suicide d'un juge d'instruction ayant échoué à résoudre cette affaire). Il mène alors une enquête en parallèle avec la police sur cette histoire vieille de 20 ans dont l'homme d'affaire serait l'un des commanditaires, les autres étant cités sur une mystérieuse liste.
