Pascal and his wife Sophie have been running a small local butcher's shop for about twenty years. Sophie stands with great love for her customers at the cash register and Vincent cuts the carefully selected meat with just as much love. And they lived happily ever after, you might think. But then, as is the case with many small tradesmen, business went downhill and so did their relationship. After almost 30 years of marriage, the marriage bed is as alive as the sausages in the counter. Mutual irritation hinders any form of dialogue. Love, business - nothing works out, so Sophie seeks refuge in her great passion: TV shows about serial killers. Vincent unleashes all his love on Pépère, his gentle rottweiler.

When the mercenary Samantha and her team rescue the kidnapped daughter of a governor from the clutches of African terrorists, everything initially looks like a routine job for the experienced professionals. But the head of the kidnappers Zalaam and his men immediately follow their heels and a dramatic chase begins, which leads Samantha's mercenary troops to an abandoned farm. The team soon realizes that the site was previously used by poachers to raise lions that were sold to trophy hunters and animal dealers - and that not all lions have left the farm. On the run from the terrorists and the most dangerous predator in Africa, the soldiers understand how quickly humans can reach the end of the food chain when hunters become the hunted.
