After the latest in a long run of drunken encounters with London's constabulary, wealthy layabout heir Arthur Rawlings is sent off to the south of France by his businessman uncle. Sick and tired of bailing his nephew out - often literally, from police custody - Arthur Snr. orders him to go and work as a waiter at one of the family-owned hotels.

However, Arthur Jnr. has fallen head-over-heels for humble shop worker Frances, who saved him from the very worst of his latest sticky situation. Unfortunately she also lost her own job in the fall-out, and so he suggests she head to the south of France too...
