While in prison awaiting trial for the attempted murder of his wife, Claude (Marc Michel) learns that some inmates are plotting an escape and decides to go along with them -- only to learn that his wife has dropped the charges and his sentence has been reduced. He still agrees to participate in the jailbreak, knowing that he's risking his freedom by doing so. This is director Jacques Becker's final film.
