Francis and Charles successfully steal billion francs. Francis hides the money in a swimming pool locker room. However the next day Charles shows Francis the front page of the newspaper – there is a photograph with Francis in it. Charles tells Francis he’s too risky, and orders him to take the bag out of the locker and drop it off with Charles. Francis tries to so this but police are everywhere. Francis then overhears the cashier telling the police he remembers the suitcase where the thieves stashed the money. Desperate, Francis places the bag in the pool. The bag breaks open and Francis and Charles look on as the money float to the top of the pool. The money is spotted by the police – but what will come of the two robbers?
