Summary
Alain Chanier is a dapper businessman from Marseilles, France, who is in reality a drug lord working on a big score - selling $32 million worth of heroin in New York City. But his potential buyer - small-time hood Salvatore Boca - is being tailed by two undercover NYC cops, James "Popeye" Doyle and Buddy "Cloudy" Russo. The more Popeye and Cloudy dig, the closer they get - to the mysterious 'French connection' and a final showdown between the dealers and the police
