Synopsis / Plot
One morning, a wealthy business man Bertrand Barnier receives a visit from one of his employees, Christian Martin, who demands both his daughter’s hand in marriage and a substantial pay rise. When Barnier refuses, Christian reveals that he has embezzled a small fortune from the company’s funds, with which he has bought a suitcase full of jewels. When Christian offers to hand over the suitcase, Barnier agrees to the marriage, without realising that Martin’s girlfriend is not really his daughter at all, but a poor girl who is just pretending that Barnier is her father. Before he discovers the truth, Barnier learns that his real daughter is pregnant, by his ex-chauffeur Oscar who has just set off for a polar expedition. Eager to avoid a scandal, Barnier attempts to bribe Christian into marrying his real daughter...
