1 hr. 24 min.
While collecting payment from a Paris photography shop, hard-working fuel delivery man Yvon Targe (Christian Patey) is purposefully given counterfeit money without his knowledge. When Yvon innocently uses the bills to pay for his lunch later that day at a local café, he narrowly avoids arrest but loses his job. To support his family, Yvon takes a new job with a criminal element, but his life continues nevertheless to spiral downward into the depths of violence and despair.
