Having pulled off a robbery with his friend Maurice, Olivier leaves his mistress Lola and hides out in a small village in the country.

Once the robbery has been all but forgotten, Olivier intends to head back to Paris, but before he goes, he steals money from his employer.

Before returning to Monique, Olivier calls on Jérôme to recover the necklace.
