This French drama, loosely based on Fyodor Dostoevsky's classic novel, follows Inspector Gallet (Jean Gabin), a Parisian police detective in pursuit of a callous murderer. The person is question is René Brunel (Robert Hossein), a university student who decides that society's laws don't apply to him, and manages to justify the killing of a wealthy old woman in his own mind. Gallet slowly closes in on Brunel, and a kindhearted prostitute (Marina Vlady) eventually gets drawn into the proceedings.
