Moltès is a convict who becomes friends with Reggio, a prison guard. Reggio plays the Lotto each week with the hope of leaving his miserable life. When the two of them win the jackpot, they can't believe their eyes. But Reggio's wife, a nurse, flies to Africa with the winning ticket. Moltès decides to go to Mali, taking Reggio with him, in search of his wife... and the ticket. The two, however, were not counting on the presence of a Turkish killer on their case.
