The actions of the TV series begin 25 years ago, when the father of the young Assane is taken to prison. Babakar Diop, a native of Senegal, is accused of stealing a necklace that previously belonged to Marie Antoinette herself. Assan’s father worked as a driver for the wealthy Pellegrini family who owned this jewel. When the necklace is gone, Babakar’s employer points out his chauffeur to the police. As a result, Babakar commits suicide and Assane ends up in an orphanage.

Years later, the matured Assane became a “gentleman thief” living according to the precepts of Arsene Lupin, his favorite literary character. Suddenly, Marie Antoinette’s necklace is back in the public eye. Pellegrini puts up an incredible piece of jewelry for auction. Assane Diop understands that the time has come to find out what really happened 25 years ago.
