Synopsis by Hal Erickson

Juvenile actor Joel Flateau is the center of attention in Sans Familie (Nobody's Boy). Heir to a fortune, the young protagonist is kidnapped by an unscrupulous uncle who wants to put the boy out of the way and thereby get his own mitts on the money. The villain turns the kid over to an assassin (Pierre Brasseur), who hasn't the heart to murder the wide-eyed moppet. Thus, the boy is left in the care of a happy-go-lucky travelling troubadour (Gino Cervi), and thus begins a series of delightful misadventures. Sans Familie was based on a novel by Hector Malot.
