Both die during a failed rescue attempt by the police. 15 years later, Robertson, still feeling guilty about that tragic event, falls in love in Italy with Geneviève Bujold, a young italian girl bearing a tremendous resemblance with Robertson's first wife. They return to New Orleans in order to get married. But Geneviève Bujold is also kidnapped and Robertson has a second chance to save his love.
