In this French romance, an escaped convict on the lam falls in love with a movie costumer. Paul Salomon is on the lam after he broke out of prison. He goes a winterbound resort town near the English Channel to retrieve a satchel full of loot. He is headed for Blighty. In the town, he stops in a clothing shop where he encounters Suzanne, another customer. Later he sees her in a restaurant and sits down at her table. He immediately tells her who he is and what he is doing. Suzanne disbelieves him and begins making up outrageous lies about her own life. She bases her "lifestory" on that of Helena the Russian violinist who is the protagonist of the film she is working on. Paul keeps telling the truth and she keeps embellishing until she finally realizes that he isn't lying. She falls for him and they passionately consummate their budding affair. Meanwhile a police chief is hot on Paul's trail.
