In this comedic spy yarn, star Paul Meurisse scores with his witty, sophisticated interpretation of his character Dromard, a French secret agent distinguished by his use of a black monocle. In this adventure, several agents from many Western nations and Russia as well are all looking for some documents hidden by the Germans during World War II. Along with the documents is a supposed buried treasure, but it is a toss-up as to what matters the most -- the treasure, or getting rid of incriminating material in the documents themselves. The agents have caught on to the fact that one German most likely knows where the documents are hidden, and everyone goes after him.
