Plot

In Brussels, rival criminal gangs confront each other. One is led by Vicky, proprietor of a night club on a barge; the other by Bug, who wants to reign over the lucrative night life business. Vicky and her gang, who are planning a bank raid, are going to see their plans confounded by Bug. In effect, he is being manipulated by a police officer who forces him to help break up a drug trafficking deal in return for keeping his residence in Belgium. Bug and Yoko will strongly compromise the bank raid, believing that it is linked to the drugs.

Book

The film is based on the Auguste Le Breton novel, Du rififi chez les femmes, published in 1957 and reprinted in 2010.
