Migonnet, a philosophy instructor who happens to be in the wrong place at the wrong time, unintentionally ends up with the loot from a high-end robbery when the escaping thief needs somewhere to dump the evidence. The problem is that his newfound windfall is no secret from the underworld, and before he knows it, Migonnet is being chased by an assortment of greedy criminal elements.
