The plot concerns the efforts of a young man to escape his own country in favor of a more agreeable clime. What is unusual here is that the hero is a Frenchman who yearns to live in communist Czechoslovakia! His wish is granted when, mistaken as a member of a French boating team, he manages to elude the democratic authorities long enough to scamper over the Czech border. It turns out that he is motivated by romance rather than politics.


At the insistence of the Czechoslovakian judges, the French-Czech Liberte Sureveille (Provisional Liberty) was withdrawn from the 1958 Cannes Film Festival, though it was shown out of competition.
