There have been a lot of burglaries of cats and expensive jewelery, the burglaries all over the seaside resorts on the French Riviera. The police believe the burglaries were committed by ex-scammer John Robie - nickname "the cat" - the burglary feature of his M.O. Robie's old co-workers, most of whom have worked for one of them, Bertani, in his restaurant, believe that it's Robie they dislike when they feel guilty about former employees pointing in their direction. The general belief that it is Robie is that he and his former cat-theft staff, although a hero of the French Resistance during the war, voiced a probation for the war effort. Robie, who leads a comfortable life as a hobby gardener in a seaside villa, claims he has not broken a cat ever since before working for the Resistance. As such, he feels he has no choice but to catch the burglar himself. He believes that it must be someone who knows him or who has learned the details of his earlier break-ins, like someone who worked for the local police before the war. He must think like a burglar, anticipating his next goals and catching him in the act. Two women follow him romantically. One of them is Danielle Foussard, the daughter of one of his former colleagues - the current wine waitress in the restaurant - who wants him to see her as a woman and not as the child he knows. The other is Francie Stevens, an American celebrity who is vacationing with her mother, Jessie Stevens, as the burglar's next target. Francie's persecution of Robie seems to bring some excitement into her life because, whether cat thief or not, he has that sense of danger, unlike most men she's home with. Robie, Francie, and Danielle may either be in danger of being killed by their former collaborators, who may wish to get rid of him, by only directing the unwanted spotlight on them by the authorities in Robie, Francie, and / or Danielle, who were arrested at the wrong time was the wrong place, or the real new burglar cat, if it gets too close to discovering the truth.
