Fresh out of jail after five years, master burglar Tony le Stéphanois returns to Paris to discover that his girl is now the mistress of a rival dope-dealing gangster. Tony reluctantly accepts the proposition of a quick smash-and-grab raid on a prestigious jewelry store, as long as he can turn it into an all-out jewel heist. The band of thieves stands a great chance of succeeding—but what if opening the safe is the robbery’s easiest part?
