Veteran gangster Gu (Daniel Auteuil) is looking to make one final score so he can retire to a quiet life with his girlfriend (Monica Bellucci). Things are complicated by the fact Gu just escaped from prison, and all of French law enforcement is in pursuit. Chief among them is a no-nonsense police commissioner, Blot (Michel Blanc). The heist comes off, but Gu is made to look like a traitor. He works to clear his name as the sometimes fine line between police and thieves is explored.
