As a fugitive from the Gestapo, reluctant spy Jean Casson is no longer able to take his accustomed place among his well-to-do former associates, but must somehow struggle to survive in the shadows -- among the pimps and whores of Pigalle, among anarchists and thieves. This time, however, he is determined to stay clear of trouble. Yet, as the war drags on and he sees what is happening to his compatriots, Casson begins, inevitably, to drift back into the dangerous world of resistance and sabotage -- torn once again between honor, patriotism, love and survival.
