Montreal provides a backdrop for this intriguing, fast-paced political drama about the later, dangerous interactions of two boys who first became best friends during their years at an orphanage. Once the boys leave the orphanage to continue their separate ways as adults, they keep in touch with each other even though they disagree on almost all the major issues in life. Lucien (Pierre Curzi) veers to the active left as he joins causes defending the disenfranchised against the powerful and wealthy, and Jacques (Roger Blay) has joined the powerful and wealthy -- he is a lieutenant of the Prime Minister himself. Lucien is thrown in prison for two years on charges that were false, and when he gets out he joins up with Jacques who has been demoted by the Prime Minister and is angry enough to take action. The two men devise a plan to settle their scores, though there are more perils involved in the plan than first meets the eye.
