Tagline: It was supposed to be an easy job.
A gang of French burglars are assigned by their boss to rob a private house which has lots of jewellery in Chicago, United States. The burglars are actually not very smart in action. Apparently, they rob the wrong house which is owned by Frankie Zammeti (Keitel), the head of the Chicago mafia. Unaccustomed to the ways of the American underworld, it is not long before they have the mafia, the FBI and a couple of street gangs on their backs as they attempt to make their way back to Paris.
