In a French village near the Riviera, on the eve of World War II, mild-mannered teacher Josef Vadassy stops to pick up his vacation photos. Before he can admire the fruits of his favorite hobby, he is promptly arrested for espionage. It seems Vadassy captured some secret battlements on film without knowing it.
The enigmatic police interrogator offers the dumbfounded Vadassy a deal: spy on his fellow hotel guests. If the real villain in unmasked, the teacher can return to Paris in time to start his new term, only three days away.
Reluctant at first, the young sleuth gets carried away in his role as master spy and causes his police chief trouble.
