Adèle is on the verge of committing suicide from a bridge when Gabor, a knife thrower, arrives and tries to dissuade her from jumping. Gabor saves her life. Gabor offers her a job as the moving target. Soon, their act becomes widely known and they perform in the casinos of France, Monte-Carlo and Italy.

But Adèle goes on searching for the Prince Charming and sleeps with any good-looking man coming close to her while Gabor is little-by-little falling in love with her. Although she has also told Gabor she's attracted by him, she will finally abandon her partner when she meets a wealthy young Greek who attended their show. But their separation is also the end of the exceptional period of luck both have lived for a few weeks; Adèle is soon abandoned in a Greek island and Gabor, after having injured his new partner with a knife, is living like a hobo in Istanbul, Turkey.
