An aging gangster, Fernand Naudin (Lino Ventura) is hoping for a quiet retirement when he unexpectedly inherits a fortune from an old gangster friend. If he is ambivalent about his new found wealth, Fernand is positively puzzled to discover that he has also inherited his benefactor’s daughter, Patricia (Sabine Sinjen). Not only does Fernand have to put up with the thoroughly modern Patricia and her nauseating boyfriend, but he also has to contend with his benefactor’s money-hungry former employees.
