Marie Bens, an accident-prone girl disappears in Mexico. Her father, a wealthy businessman, hires the private detective Campana (Depardieu) to find her but in vain. A psychologist suggests to Mr Bens to send one of his own employees, François Perrin (Richard), to Mexico with Campana. Perrin is a guy as unfortunate and accident-prone as Marie Bens and there is a chance that he could lead Campana to the young girl.

In Mexico, thanks to the involuntary help of Perrin, Campana, who wasn't so sure at first that Perrin's bumbling ways could be of some help, discovers that Marie Bens has been kidnapped. Both men decide then to follow Marie's trace into the Mexican jungle.
