Not wanting to stay in a reform school until she turns 21, Arlette decides to escape to Paris. Once in Paris, she joins the school for pickpockets. Arlette's first assignment is to pass a dishonesty test, but she fails because she only steals bread. The school is run by Professor Aristide who thinks Arlette can become a professional thief. Arlette thinks that she is a professional thief, but when she tries to steal a stick pin, a man catches her. Instead of calling the police, the man takes Arlette to his fancy house, where he tells her to do him a favor: He wants her to steal the pocket watch of Pierre de Roche.
