Two years after a "burn-out", unemployed Duval is contacted by a mysterious employer offering him work transcribing telephone taps.

Although it helps him to get back on his feet again, this simple work will soon draw him unwittingly into the centre of a political plot and plunge him into the pitiless world of the secret services.
