After crashing an expensive item of stock in Paris, secondhand car salesman Tony is penniless and homeless. He solves the second by persuading an old flame to take him in and decides to tackle the first in alliance with his friend Bob, a taxi driver, by betting on the horses. At the races he meets and charms Muriel, mistress of a rich industrialist named Gabriel. She takes him as cover on a skiing holiday in the Alps, where she can meet up with Gabriel whenever he can get away from his wife Béatrice. The plan works well, because Béatrice falls for Tony. He however is struck by the Baroness von Strasshofer, who offers to take him as her companion on her yacht, moored at Cannes and sailing for Tahiti. She also lets the faithful Bob on as crew.

Tony gets worn out by the insatiable demands of the Baroness and befriends an innocent young passenger called Véronique, who says she is going to Tahiti to claim her inheritance and will not sleep with him. Once at Tahiti, the Baroness finds herself a new young man and, jealous of Tony's attentions to Véronique, slings him and Bob off the boat. After meeting a drunken old beachcomber who says there is a workable deposit of manganese on a deserted atoll, they find Véronique. She has been given the name of her family property, an isolated island, and sailing to it with her they find a mineshaft. Bringing up some metal ore, they take it back to Tahiti for analysis, which proves it to be valuable manganese. After strenuous bargaining,Tony sells the mineral rights to an English businessman. When he gives the cheque to Véronique, she does not fall into his arms but into those of her overjoyed father, who had planted the manganese and acted as the sozzled beachcomber.

Penniless and homeless, Tony and Bob work their way back to France as crew. There Tony is knocked down by the Rolls of a wealthy widow, who takes him to her luxurious apartment and puts him in her own bed for attention. He is last seen, worn out by her demands, running free through Paris.
