In Nicolas Billon’s Butcher, an old man in a strange uniform is dropped off at a police station at 3 a.m. on Christmas Eve. He refuses to speak English, and has a meat hook dangling from his neck. Impaled on the hook is the business card of a local lawyer and the words “Arrest Me.” Haunted by events a world away, a victim confronts the perpetrator of a war crime in a struggle for truth.
