It's the beginning of the summer holiday for Antoine and Hélène and they are heading to Tours where their children are waiting for them. Antoine had already drunken a few beers and whiskies before the departure and he's now riled up by the traffic jam on the freeway. He decides to leave it in order to take the highway. Now he's quarrelling with Hélène who doesn't want him to stop for another drink. When Antoine gets out of the bar, Hélène is not in the car anymore. She has left a note saying that she will take the next train to Tours.

Antoine tries to catch up with the train but fails. Still drinking a lot, Antoine agrees to drive a man he's encountered in a bar to Bordeaux. But soon, he understands that this man is in fact a criminal on the run the whole French police forces are searching. Although inebriated, Antoine manages to kill this criminal before he's himself killed by him. The next morning, Antoine will desperately try to locate Hélène nobody seems to have seen since the previous evening.
