The film's sets were designed by Jacques Colombier. Two idle Parisian boulevardiers set up a detective agency. They are separately hired by a husband and wife to spy on each other with their respective lovers, while a Turkish Prince has fallen in love with both the wife and her husband's mistress. Eventually everything is resolved to everyone's satisfaction.
