At night, he roams the roofs of Paris with Nico, a skilful burglar. Jeanne, the police commissioner, is at breaking point. She has to catch the person behind several jewellery thefts. At the same time she must supervise the surveillance around the Colosse de Nairobi, a giant statue that is coveted by Costa, a criminal responsible for the death of her policeman husband. Ever since his death, her little daughter hasn’t spoken a word. Events descend into chaos one night when Zoe surprises Costa and his band, leading to an all-night chase, which brings everyone together either helping each other or fighting with each other…ending up finally on the roof of the Cathedrale de Notre Dame.
