Of course, Carlotta sets out to look for her loot, accompanied by Marius, her inseparable henchman who’s got a southern French accent so thick you could cut it with the same kind of knife as those which he handles with diabolical precision.

A cascade of events, due to an amazing combination of circumstances, leads him, against his will, to fill the shoes – and apartment – of one the city’s best cops for whom, it turns out, he’s a dead ringer.
