Marc Dombasle is a successful businessman. He was also the captain of the French Rugby team that beat England at Twickenham twenty years earlier. To mark the anniversary, Dombasle organises a reunion for the members of the winning team. When Chief Inspector Daniel Jacquot receives his invitation to attend the party he is reluctant, but an old friend persuades him and he makes his way to the millionaire's sumptuous Côte d'Azur home. But past rivalries soon re-surface and when one of Jacquot's old team-mates commits suicide in a pool-side cabana, his suspicions are aroused. Is there a killer amongst them?
