Max is a Paris detective hellbent on justice at any cost after watching one too many wily criminals slip through his fingers. Following a chance encounter with Abel, an Army buddy now working as a scrap collector (most of whose "scrap" just happens to be stolen), Max decides to lure Abel and his gang into committing a bank that he can then catch them red-handed. So Max poses as a wealthy banker and begins a series of illicit rendezvous with the high-class prostitute Lily, who happens to be Abel's girlfriend, carefully dropping hints about a bank that's just waiting to be knocked over. But there's one thing the cold-hearted Max doesn't factor into his diabolical scheme: the possibility of falling in love.
