Henri, a prisoner in Germany, is sent home to discover that his wife died giving birth to a child - a child he had nothing to do with. Years go by and success smiles on all but the youngest. But between easy winnings and easy money, his real children become a disappointment to him. Henri now realises that only one child cares for him.
