Classic comedy directed by Ralph Smart. A close family bond allows Victor Hemsley (Ronald Squire) and his daughter, Clare (Peggy Cummins), to pose as husband and wife. Using this to their advantage, the pair perform an elaborate scam to yield money from other guests living in hotels throughout the Riviera. But when Clare meets British Treasury worker Terence Winch (Terence Morgan) her outlook changes. Seeking a life away from the scamming and scheming, Clare sees Terence as a way out, but before leaving for good she agrees to stage one more scam with her father. However, when their latest plan goes wrong and the pair then flee to Italy, Terence begins pursuing Clare for different reasons altogether.
