A shy delivery truck driver accidentally comes across a shooting where two bags full of money remain at the scene. The driver hides them in his truck, triggering a series of dramatic events. The police must solve the crime and the mafia wants their money back. Inspired by a 2010 shooting in Montreal, this chilling comedy is a loose sequel to Arcand's The Barbarian Invasions.
