A small-time thief steals a car and impulsively murders a motorcycle policeman. Wanted by the authorities, he reunites with a hip American journalism student and attempts to persuade her to run away with him to Italy.
The inspiration for the story was a newspaper article that François Truffaut read. It was about a small-time criminal called Michel Portail and his American girlfriend. In 1952, Portail stole a car to visit his sick mother in Le Havre in the north of France but ended up killing a motorcycle cop.
