Moltès is arrested by the police forces after having killed the brother of "The Turk" who betrayed Moltès's gang. Seven years later, still in prison, Moltès wins the jackpot of the French national lottery. The only problem is that Reggio, the warden whom Moltès had asked to buy the lottery ticket, has lost it.
Moltès escapes from the penitentiary, goes straight to Reggio's home where the warden tells him that his wife, a nurse, has just left for Africa with the winning ticket in her bag. Both men take the plane to Bamako and disappear into the desert, looking for Reggio's wife. Meanwhile, the Turk who has dreamed of avenging his brother since his death, has heard of Moltès's good fortune and follows him in the wilderness.
Moltès the criminal and Reggio the naive warden will become friends during the numerous adventures they will have before recovering the winning lottery ticket.
