The womanizing gaucho Cesar Campo lives a carefree life on the Pampas. However when a plane lands nearby he meets an attractive French singer and her unscrupulous fiancée who is so impressed by Cesar's horse that he arranges to have it stolen to enter in a horse race under a false name. Cesar pursues them to Buenos Aires and after a flirtation with the French singer and a series of culture clashs in sophisticated hotels and restaurants he rescues the horse and returns home.
