Fred (Christopher Lambert) is a debonaire safe cracker who is on the run after stealing some documents from a high ranking gangster.

In this surreal setting he manages to still pursue a life of crime, make new friends and even form a band with some of the residents. He also starts a relationship with Helena (Isabelle Adjani), the beautiful wife of the gangster who is disillusioned with her marriage and lifestyle.
