A young boy is raised in the French countryside by his grandma, who buys him a bicycle and encourages his dream of winning the Tour de France, in this whimsical animation. However, he gets kidnapped by a group of Mafia gangsters and taken to the big city of Belleville, where he is used for his bicycling prowess in an elaborate gambling scheme.
