A boisterous, cheerful and lusty man, Lajoie (Jean Carmet) meets his friends every year at a family campsite. During the whole vacation, Lajoie has been eyeing his teenage son's nubile girlfriend. During an occasion which puts them alone together, he attempts to rape her. When she fights back, he attempts to subdue her with a punch, and accidentally kills her. Frightened, he dumps her body near an Arab neighborhood, and then incites a lynch mob after spreading rumors that the girl was murdered by Arabs. For a while, it looks like this all-too common man will get away with his crime.
