Lyon, 1943. A man named Fontaine, who worked for the French Resistance, was captured by the Nazis and held in a prison in France along with a multitude of other men and women who were accusing or planning to attack the Nazis. No one knows what his fate will be, though they can hear executions by shooting troops out of their jail cells. When Fontaine settles in the second cell where he is housed in the jail, he finds a possible way out of his cell without his kidnappers knowing. From this point of departure and an iron spoon, which he secretly keeps as the only tool, Fontaine decides to flee the cell, which requires careful planning and great patience. As soon as he's out, he plans to flee the prison itself. Since he knows no one in prison before his arrival, he has to decide whom he can trust, as he will need the help of others along the way. An interruption of his routine occurs when he believes he has all the resources to make a legitimate escape attempt when he finds out his verdict. He is forced to make decisions to implement his plan immediately and take even greater risks.
