Down-on-his-luck François Rothschild (George Arliss) gets arrested in Paris, but because he coincidentally shares the last name of a well-to-do family, he walks out of jail several thousand francs richer. And when he deposits the money at a local bank, he is offered a job there, once again by virtue of his name. The motives of the bank are not entirely pure, however, and Rothschild must unravel a devious plot while trying to assist in the union of two young lovers.
