Unaware of her father's identity, car thief Alice Tomaso (Vanessa Paradis) is released from prison one month after her mother's death. She plays an audiocassette in which her mother tells her that 20 years earlier she loved two men and thus never knew which was Alice's father. Alice steals a sports car and drives toward the south of France to seek out both possible papas, now semi-retired businessmen. Auto dealer Leo Brassac (Belmondo) and successful Julien Vignal (Delon), who flies his own helicopter, dislike each other, but they team up after Alice steals a car with $50 million of Russian Mafia money in the trunk. The Russian syndicate wants Alice to turn over the money, but she can't; it was taken by undercover cop Carella (Eric Defosse), tracking each illegal Russkie move. Fortunately, former Foreign Legionnaire Leo and jewel-thief Julien have both the weapon power and smarts to help Alice thwart all mob machinations.

"I wanted to make a film that would be pure entertainment. Really, deliberately! A mainstream, popular film. A show! Entertainment movies are there to be enjoyed at face value, for sheer fun. I wanted the actors to really have fun with their performances, even if the filming was sometimes difficult and complicated. I wanted the movie to be like one huge electric train set. Belmondo, Delon and Vanessa threw themselves into the filming like kids in a giant playground." (Patrice Leconte)
