In the name of the law

In a frenzied race against time, In the Name of the Law follows Simon Pelletier’s quest for justice and his desperate efforts to escape the forces of order that are hot on his heels. Simon Pelletier was condemned to prison for life for a murder he claims not to have committed. After twelve years in prison, he exhausted all of his legal remedies and his financial resources. Helped by his girlfriend Céline, and ex-convict Scorpion, he escapes and will do anything to shake up the system and prove his innocence. But is Simon innocent? If he isn’t the killer, who is?
