The wealthy old lady (Françoise Rosay) in this French comic crime caper is largely unaware of the machinations of her servants and relatives to arrange to be the beneficiaries of her will. She is completely in the dark about their many unsuccessful efforts to bring her life to a premature conclusion. Her nurse (Anny Duperey) has ambitions along these lines and is in love with the woman's disinherited nephew (Bruno Pradal). She seems a better sort than the chauffeur (Philippe Clay) and some of the old lady's other relatives, who would stop at nothing.
