Piano player and Polish émigré Jerzy Wozzack brought his family to Paris to escape Communist rule and discover new opportunities for prosperity and freedom. But now they're scrounging along the edge of poverty, stuck in an unwelcoming city that drains Jerzy's self-respect and cultural identity.
Hope shines bright, though, when a fellow émigré offers him an in on a high-paying job delivering anonymous packages to anonymous recipients. Jerzy leaps at the chance and quickly finds himself flush with cash - but snared in the drug-smuggling schemes of a sadistic crime lord and his seductive assistant.
Even as Jerzy struggles to break free from their clutches, the heady whirl of sex, drugs, and riches sucks him deeper into Paris's debauched underworld, where a massive turf war is brewing and the only escape is death.
