This biopic chronicles the true experiences of a British government representative who is sent with his wife to wild, exotic Samoa. Their primary task is to somehow please the persnickety resident bureaucrat. Unfortunately, he is not easily pleased and the harder the representative tries, the worse he botches things up. As a result he is sent to an even tinier island. Depressed and feeling a failure, cracks begin appearing in his stiff-upper lip. Fortunately, his loyal wife is not so easily discouraged and helps him find courage.
