A few days before Inspector Ambrosio's holiday, a usual bank robbery takes place opposite his house. Then a playboy dies in a car “accident” that points to murder. The Inspector finds that his chief witness, a timid violinist and his drug-addicted daughter were closely involved with the victim. Can he “clear his desk” in time for his well-earned break?
