Philippe Gerbier, the head of a French Resistance network, is arrested by Vichy French police on suspicion of Resistance activity. Acquitted for lack of evidence, he is still interned in a camp. He and a young communist begin to work on an escape plan, but before it can come to fruition, he is transported to Paris for questioning by the Gestapo. He manages to kill a guard and to make his escape.

Gerbier manages the Resistance network in Marseille. He and three of his men, Félix Lepercq; Guillaume Vermersch, a burly veteran known as Bison; and Claude Ullmann, a young recruit known as Le Masque; need to execute one of their own members, a young agent, Paul Dounat, for having betrayed Gerbier. They find the house next door to the one that they are using occupied and so they cannot use their guns. Lacking a decent knife, they strangle him.
