Henri Rainier is an employee at Miremant bank. He makes loans to an adventurous client, the Chevalier d'Aven, knowing that he has the backing of his superiors. However, the relationship proves financially disastrous, and the bank is faced with having to cover up its massive deficit. The bank's managers want to disassociate themselves from the scandal. As it is Rainier's client who is accused of fraud, the managers hold Rainier responsible for it and fire him from his bank job. However, Rainier refuses to take it lying down, and knows that it was the bank's directors who approved the loan. Rainier's wife Cécile and union representative Arlette suggest he sue his former company. Determined not to be the scapegoat, and anxious to avoid possible criminal charges, Rainier sets out to prove his former superiors' responsibility for this and other shady transactions.
