In France, Georges St. Germain finds himself in love with Eleanor Kent, a nice American. Having discovered that she is a great friend of Yvette, his ex-girlfriend now the wife of the very jealous Henri Bérgère, Georges takes the initiative to go and stay in the Bérgère's hotel, hoping to be able to attend Eleanor without problems. Her move, however, is interpreted by Yvette as a flashback to her, which also triggers her husband's jealousy. Georges will be able to definitively conquer the beautiful American, despite the misunderstandings and jealousies aroused in spite of himself.
