Pierre Gohelle is a hardened criminal on the run from the police who plans to escape to another country with the help of his mistress, Marie-Ange. On the way to the seaport, he runs into a young banker, Alain Ginestier, who boasts that he is heading off to South America with 300 thousand Francs in his wallet. It so happens that Gohelle is in great need of money. With the police roaming the harbor, he will need quite a few banknotes to bribe the crew of the cargo vessel he intends to escape in.To that end, he enlists Marie-Ange's in divesting Ginestier of his well-endowed wallet. The banker is easily seduced by the hoodlum's fascinating mistress, but the latter has a change of heart and refuses to go ahead with the theft.

Gohelle vient de s'évader de prison et arrive à gagner un port où un cargo doit le mener au loin. Le capitaine l'avertit que son équipage exige en échange la forte somme. Gohelle demande alors à sa maîtresse Marie-Ange de circonvenir Alain, jeune homme d'apparence fortunée, rencontré dans le train. La franchise, la fraîcheur d'Alain séduisent Marie-Ange, affreusement déçue d'apprendre ensuite que le garçon a volé l'argent qu'il possède. Elle le convainc de restituer son vol et veut quitter la France avec lui. Gohelle devine ses projets et après avoir liquidé le capitaine du cargo, abat la jeune femme sur le quai de la gare et tombe entre les mains des policiers.
