The tragic death of Gabrielle, brutally murdered at the tender age of 18, plunges the Ludovic Dessureaux family into hell.
At the beginning of the series, the Dessureaux, already torn apart, find themselves brought together by force of circumstance as they attend the trial of Gabrielle’s alleged killer, Nathan Rabeau. Unfortunately, justice will not be done and Rabeau is acquitted. The incomprehensible verdict puts the family members into a state of shock at the injustice of it all.
Each member of the Dessureaux family reacts differently to the not-guilty verdict for the alleged killer. For Ludovic, it’s a real nightmare, leaving him feeling abandoned by the justice system he always believed in. He then decides to team up with his son Raphaël to avenge his daughter’s death and protect his family in a way that goes far beyond the limits of the law.
Lucie, who is also a criminal court judge, allies herself with her daughter Alicia, in an attempt to overturn the unjust verdict that let a murderer go free. They come into direct contact with him in the process. Their challenge is fraught with danger and the results are not in any way a sure thing.
Is taking the law into your own hands ever the right solution? Will making the right choice quench the Dessureaux’s desire for revenge?
The Les Honorables series is first and foremost the story of a dysfunctional family, whose members are looking to putting things back together, facing their demons, and giving meaning to their lives, with or without justice.
