Director and co-scripter Jean-Marc Thibault shares writing and acting honors with fellow vaudevillian Roger Pierre in this amusing and occasionally hilarious comedy about a petty thief and an intended sacrificial victim. Maurice (Roger Pierre) has managed to get through World War II by surviving in prison, living out a sentence for stealing a bicycle. Now that the war is over and he is out to participate in the celebrations, he goes home looking for some way to make a fast franc. He moves in with local post-office worker Roland (Thibault), who is more than willing to help him out. But after Maurice steals a horse and hides it in their apartment with the intent of selling it off to a slaughterhouse, the two are more than challenged -- especially since they both are developing a real affection for the potential victim.
