Alice, 20 years old, just got out of prison. Her mother, before dying at the hospital, recorded a tape explaining to Alice that her father is either Léo Brassac (Belmondo) or Julien Vignal (Delon). Alice decides to meet them both, steals a car and drives to the French Riviera.

Alice and her fathers get along well until the day Alice steals the car of a Russian mobster. Unfortunately for our heroes, there was a wallet containing 50 million dollars, the loot of a drug deal, hidden in the boot. While the money is discreetly recovered by a policeman, without anybody noticing it, the Russians bad guys start to threaten Léo and Julien who, not at all intimidated, fight back.
