When dark jealousies surface on the French Riviera, Chief Inspector Daniel Jacquot suspects that someone is out for revenge. 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 Cote 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?
