Daniel Foray (Gérard Depardieu) is the leader of a group of burglars in Paris. When Daniel is instructed by his boss to go to Chicago to pull off an easy job, it seems simple enough – he even has an English-speaking thief to help him out. When they arrive in Chicago, however, it quickly turns into Daniel’s worst nightmare.

First they find themselves on the wrong side of town and in a scrape with a local black gang. Then they steal a car, which happens to belong to the head of the Chicano gang.

And then, after breaking into the house and tying up the owner, they proceed to crack open the safe; but in the middle of the job, they realize it is the wrong house and it’s the boss of the Chicago Mafia, Zammeti (Harvey Keitel), they are robbing. Now he wants revenge.
