In Paris's Montmartre district, everyone knows Bob, a well-dressed compulsive gambler.

He's generous, moralistic, drives a convertible coupe, lives in a swank apartment, and has the respect of the police. But he's on a losing streak and he loses at the Deauville casino. When he learns that the casino keeps a fortune on Grand Prix weekend, he plots a robbery. Subplots trace a seemingly innocent coquette's social climb and the greed of a croupier's wife who betrays the thieves.
