The Snows of Kilimanjaro
Les neiges du Kilimandjaro

Despite losing his job, Michel lives happily with Marie-Claire. They have been in love for more than thirty years. Their children and grandchildren delight them. They have plenty of close friends. They are proud of their union and political struggles. Their conscience is as clear as their view of life. This happiness will be shattered along with their French window by two young men, armed and masked, who beat them, tie them up, snatch their wedding rings and flee with their credit cards and snatch to go for a trip to Kilimanjaro.
