Director Henri Roussel adapted the screenplay of Atout Coeur (Hearts are Trumps) from a play by Felix Gandera. The troubles begin for heroine Arlette (Alice Cocea) when she is forced into a marriage with a self-styled nobleman. In truth, Arlette's new husband is a common burglar who has stolen the real nobleman's identification papers. Thanks to the intervention of a resourceful cousin, Arlette meets and falls in love with the actual nobleman, to whom, under the eyes of the law, she has been married all along. The intricacies of the storyline are presented in an attractive, intelligent fashion by Roussel and his talented cast.
