Plot Summary

A boy is kidnapped and murdered on the French Riviera. The police, who had watched the delivery of the ransom to TWO men give chase once they determine that the boy is dead. The police never lose sight of the TWO men who flee on a speedboat and run into an old lighthouse after landing. However, when the police surrounds the lighthouse, THREE men come out, each one claiming that he was there on a stroll and the following investigation can not determine who is lying. The three men are put on trial, but the jury finds them innocent, because they can not determine which two are guilty. Summary justice is made by a mob when the three men leave the court after their acquittal. Written by Ricardo Zucca
