Director Denys Arcand's thematic successor to THE DECLINE OF THE AMERICAN EMPIRE and THE BARBARIAN INVASIONS centers on a young man whose life is changed when he finds two bags of cash after an armed robbery.

Pierre-Paul Daoust (Alexandre Landry), 36, an intellectual with a PhD in philosophy is forced to work as a deliveryman to afford a decent living. One day, while delivering a parcel, he gets caught in a hold up gone terribly wrong: two dead and millions in money bags laying on the ground. Pierre-Paul is confronted with a dilemma: leave empty handed, or take the money and run?
