This French thriller is based upon a theory about the conspiracy to assassinate President Kennedy. The story begins as a reporter is informed that one of his friends may have been shot by two gunmen in an American car. The reporter goes out looking for his friend, who did not die after the shooting. Along the way he is shot at and beaten up. This does not deter the intrepid journalist who keeps getting closer to the truth. Eventually he learns that the Euro-Mafia and the French Secret police are involved in the shooting. The reporter then encounters an American who tries to dissuade him from pursuing the mystery because it is far too complex to really know the truth.
