Bourvil stars as a government clerk who discovers he can walk through walls. He is coaxed by a friend to try his hand at thievery, but he finds he is not overly fond of it until he spots a beautiful English girl, Greenwood, who has been forced into robbery through blackmail. Bourvil

immediately falls in love with her, but she is unimpressed by him. Eventually he allows himself to be caught, ending up in jail and having some fun with the police by repeatedly escaping. French comedian Bourvil adds a lot of charm to his role as the scapegoat clerk in a performance reminiscent of

Chaplin. The film was shot in France, with the dialog spoken in English in an attempt to capture the American market.
