In his mid-30's, Pierre-Paul may have a doctorate in philosophy, but is still working as a courier - proof to him that he is too intelligent to be successful because in this world, only the dumb succeed. But then, he happens to witness a robbery gone thoroughly wrong in the course of which most of the participants end up dead. Pierre-Paul remains alone with the loot - and quickly grabs the two bags filled with cash. But before he can enjoy his newfound wealth, the mob, the tax office and two clever policemen are already on his heels.
