Meanwhile, with a sense of apparent normality, the head of French Customs, Albert le Lay, is an active spy working for the Resistance. But the Gestapo decides to detain him. Someone warns him at the last minute and he sets off on a bizarre escape that starts with an innocent stroll. He is the king of Canfranc.
