The shy supplier Pierre-Paul (Alexandre Landry) accidentally gets to the scene of a crime, unintentionally picking up two bags of money and hiding them in his van. He then goes through harassing interrogations with two extremely tough police officers and must now try to get rid of the filthy money again.

But in this endeavor, the unusual quartet is shadowed by two hobbling detectives. Because not only the mafia or the tax office have a very big interest in the money ...
