EN - While Frank Valken is carrying out a daring but non-violent hold-up, a commando force steps in and kills an examining magistrate investigating a political case. Charged thanks to rigged evidence, Frank is arrested. In the face of media pressure, the gangster has no other choice but to escape and attempt to prove his innocence.

NL - Terwijl Frank Valken een gedurfde maar niet-gewelddadige overval pleegt, wordt een magistraat die onderzoek voerde naar een politieke zaak gedood door een moordcommando. Door gemanipuleerd bewijsmateriaal wordt Frank aangehouden. Omwille van de mediadruk heeft de gangster geen andere keuze dan te vluchten en er alles aan te doen om zijn onschuld te bewijzen.

FR - Frank Valken, braqueur de haut vol, vient de réaliser un dernier casse magistral sans accroc. Du moins c’est ce qu’il croit… Suspects idéals, Valken et sa bande se retrouvent mêlés à une affaire criminelle vieille de trente ans. Il semblerait que les tueurs fous soient de retour.
