Summary Tarzan assembles a group of teenagers who, under the stress of their familial or economic situations, agree to sell cigarettes smuggled into Canada from the United States. Ciboulette, the youngest of the group and the only female, is in love with Tarzan, but does not reveal this despite Tit-Noir urging her to as she is worried it will ruin the business.
Tarzan risks capture by crossing the Canada—US border with contraband cigarettes. While the others wait for Tarzan to return, Passe-Partout attempts to supplant as the gang's leader, and disobeys Tarzan's instructions by stealing a wallet from a passerby, who is actually a detective, Ledoux.

Tarzan returns to the hideout but Ledoux arrives at the gang's hideout and arrests the teenagers with a police brigade. Each member is questioned individually.
During the interrogations, the police receive a call informing them that a border patrol guard was murdered earlier that day.
The police chief interrogates Passe-Partout, who reveals that Tarzan had crossed the border that day. Under the impression that the other gang members have betrayed him, Tarzan confesses to the murder of the border guard. Ciboulette suggests a makeshift marriage in the hideout, but Tarzan refuses, not wanting to make his believed certain death more painful than it needs to be.
Tarzan wastes all of his escape time making out with Ciboulette. Tarzan runs off into the night, followed by police. Heard shortly thereafter are several gunshots, ending in silence with Roger the police officer standing over.
The curtain closes on Ciboulette lying over Tarzan's corpse. Laroche suggests that the teenaged gang members are play-acting as the characters they saw in films. Larochepp.
