A fresh-faced 20-year-old, Sebastien, leads an impoverished life with his immigrant family, constantly struggling to find the money for their next meal. When hired to repair the roof of the morphine-addicted Godon (Philippe Passon), Sebastien eavesdrops in on a conversation which appears to offer a quick and easy solution to his money troubles.

When Godon suddenly falls dead of an overdose after receiving a strange letter which is supposed to earn him a lot of money, Sebastien decides to follow the instructions in a desperate bid to secure some income for himself and his family.

He then becomes embroiled in what appears to be a wild goose chase, taking on the identity of Godon and following a series of clues. His hunt leads him to a clandestine world behind closed doors, a nightmarish place in which men gamble on the lives of other men.
