Charles Régnier, under the influence of drugs, attacks his wife Hélène and their son. Hélène brings the child to the hospital and moves into a guest house while the wealthy industrial Ludovic Régnier, Charles's father, is already thinking about a way to obtain his grandson.

Ludovic Régnier hires Jean-Pierre Cassel to whom he promises a job as a director if he manages to find evidence against Hélène that would discredit her in front of the judge. So Cassel also moves into the guest house and imagines a machiavelic scheme in order to implicate Hélène in a fraud. But everything goes wrong and the infortunate Cassel must improvize a new plan.
