They spend the night together and he learns that she's involved in smuggling weapons. They decide to leave Paris and his family behind and go on the run, on a crazy journey to nowhere. A stylish mash-up of anti-consumerist satire, au courant politics, and comic-book aesthetics, as well as a violent, zigzag tale of, as Godard called them, “the last romantic couple”.
