Synopsis / Plot
Pierre Wesserlin (Jess Hahn) is a 39 old American composer, who lives a reckless, bohemian life in Paris. One morning he receives a telegram notifying him that his wealthy aunt has died. Assuming that he will inherit her fortune, he borrows a large sum of money and throws a lavish party for his friends. However he soon discovers that his aunt left everything to his cousin. Penniless and deserted by his friends, he wanders the streets of Paris through the long hot summer, scrounging for food and resorting to petty crime to make ends meet.
