Sam Carter (Patrick) is a jeweler's clerk who dreams of stealing a fortune in diamonds and eventually does so but kills a man in the process. He then embarks on the highlife but is pursued across Europe by Milo March (Palance) a private detective who suspects that not all is above board. However, Milo is not alone in his pursuit as Trudi Hall (Ekberg) has her own ideas as to how the money would be best spent.
