The story centers around a handyman who fixes the car of two criminals and subsequently gets involved with them after his bag gets mixed up with theirs. Theirs contains stolen jewels and the crooks are eager to retrieve it. The mechanic doesn't figure it out until later. When he does, he realizes that the crooks are his neighbors in disguise. He then enlists the aid of a town cop. Meanwhile cops on both the Northern and Southern border attempt to find the robbers. A romance between a pub owner's daughter falls in love with a man from one side while her father, for whom the handyman is now working, attempts to marry her to a man from the other side. At the film's end, it is the town cop who solves the case and gets the bonny lass.
