La Mule et les Émeraudes (Original french version)

The jeweller Salomon has entrusted Gorem (Frédérick Duval) with a special job, to deliver some gems to Charlie, who is known as “the Wolf of the Caribbean”. What this young ‘mule’ doesn’t know is that the emeralds have been stolen and are coveted by rival gangs.

When Salomon is bumped off, Gorem has to deal, one after the other, with Andrew, Max, Sebastien, Lena (Anne-Marie Leduc) and his brother George (Claude Larivière), all of whom succeed in making the hunt for the emeralds just a little more complicated.

Although, what worries Gorem most is the affair of his beloved Jeanne (Susila Maraviglia) with a certain Marc (Pascal Auclair). But Gorem has a plan – he will sell the emeralds for big bucks and use the money to take Jeanne far away. He sets up a meeting with one of the gangs and arranges to meet Jeanne at the same spot. Unbeknownst to Jeanne, she is followed by a rival gang. It is the confrontation between all of these upstanding characters that will take a most unexpected turn . . .
