This is a scatterbrain comedy starring a female stereotype, who always finds a way to get into trouble (Cleo Kretschmer), and her physically uncoordinated partner (Wolfgang Fierek) who stumbles over his words and feet with equal ineptitude. The two are running a gas station with more or less success when gasoline prices begin to shoot as high as a strike in the oil fields. After they lose their business, the irate distaff half of the partnership heads off to the Middle East via London in order to hook up with an oil-rich sheik and get back their business. When her unhappy partner discovers what she has done (she sends him a postcard from North Africa) he dashes off to retrieve her from the clutches of his unwanted rival.
