1930s French black comedy set in Victorian London. Botanist Irwin Molyneux (Michel Simon) and his wife, Margaret (Françoise Rosay), are managing to survive financially owing to the fact that Irwin is also a crime writer under the pseudonym of Felix Chapel. When Irwin's cousin, Bishop Archibald Soper (Louis Jouvet), who disapproves of Chapel's stories, comes to visit, the couple try to keep the author's true identity a secret to avoid their financial situation being exposed.
