Frank must transport a million euros from Paris to Marseille while racing against two other elite runners each with the same package and destination. The client whose transporter wins will gain an important missile contract. Word of the race has reached two gangs that decide to try and rob the money but Frank, who needs to prove he's the one and only worthwhile transporter on the market, doesn't intend to let himself be swindled... The task is further complicated by a mysterious hitchhiker, who can not be shaken off and wants to know everything about Frank. Frank manages to end up as the lone transporter to finish the race, but victory is bittersweet, due to the loss of an old friend, who was one of the other two transporters in contention.
