When 50-something Jacques gets out of prison, he goes to meet his hoodlum buddies at a bistro called "Chez Roger." Among them are his friend Francis who, at 40, still lives with his mother and Didier, a small-time crook and compulsive gambler in his thirties. The two men want Jacques to join them in a heist.

But the ex-convict refuses to take part in it, having decided to turn his life around and never return to prison. However, Marcel, a career criminal, puts pressure on Jacques to take part in another crime, one involving jewels -- a project that also gets the interest of Francis and Didier.
