With the help of his driver, a criminal pulls off a daring robbery at a casino in the South of France, then double-crosses and kills him. In the struggle, he is shot and wounded. Stumbling along the shore in agony, he takes refuge in a lonely beach house, where, he finds to his cost, that the owner has a trick or two up his sleeve.
