Since then, Abel has married Therese (Simone France) and fathered two sons, and he’s decided it’s time to come home. He plan a scheme in which he steal a bundle of money to finance his return to France. He takes his kids and wife but suddenly the plan does not go as plan and he returns without his wife but with his 2 kids. An underworld boss who owes Abel some favors helps him put together a plan to travel across France in an ambulance to avoid suspicion, and recruits a headstrong young gangster, Eric (Jean-Paul Belmondo), to serve as Abel’s driver and right-hand-man. Adel develops a strong bond with eric. adel tries ti settle some old score with criminals associates who betrayed him. It is a black and white film. I enjoyed this one I hope you will too.
