Marigo, the musician, is dreaming of his instrument, which his landlady has impounded because of his chronic rent non-payments. Getting hold of a lottery ticket, he decides to put it in a safe place while awaiting the drawing: he glues it to the back of his door and covers it with the poster of his childhood hero. The night of the drawing, a fortune blinds Marigo. But the problem is that he has glued his winning ticket to his door … “Le Franc” is the first part of the series Histoires de petits gens (Tales of Little People).
