Adrien Moulinet, a collector at Nortier Bank, is the inventor of a motorized rollerskate, which he wants to market. He meets Jules, an unemployed journalist, who is going to help him with this, but, after being attacked and wounded by gangsters, Adrian is sent by his boss to recover in a spa. There, he incidentally meets the two daughters of the banker, - as well as the mistress of the husband of one of the two girls, - and soon, a sentimental and dramatic imbroglio begins to grow around the poor employee.
