Banker Fournier Pierre Fresnay prefers to spend his spare time at home. But Fournier's wife Yvonne Printemps is possessed of a wandering spirit. After much pleading and cajoling, she convinces Fournier to accompany her on a trip to America, where their daughter lives. The comedy arises from Fournier's attempts to expedite the journey without going through the usual political channels. Director Henri Lavorel is not afraid to use slapstick to make his points; one wishes, however, that Lavorel had injected a little more variety into the proceedings.
