Description:Pop star Roxanne Labelle is kidnapped by a lowlife known as “Boiteuse” (“Gimp”), who is accompanied by his girlfriend Rachel and his nephew Bing. The kidnappers demand a million-dollar ransom from Paul Labelle, the star's father and manager. However, he is a confirmed gambler who has been dipping into his daughter's savings in order to pay off his gambling debts. His bookkeeper Francis has detected the fraud but has not uncovered the culprit's identity. Paul therefore sends Francis with the ransom and hires some hit-men to kill him, recover the money and save Roxanne.
