Unwilling to sacrifice his principles, Albert Topaze, a poor but proud French schoolmaster, loses his job after he refuses to alter the failing grades of one of his students. Seizing the opportunity to exploit his well-known honesty, actress Suzy Courtois convinces her lover, the corrupt city councilman Castel Benac, to hire Topaze as a managing director for one of his shady businesses. But when Topaze learns he is being used, he cunningly turns the tables on Benac
