Fernand Mignot, a shy and naive young Frenchman, inherits his uncle’s saloon in America. When he arrives in Carson City, he must confront gold diggers and pretty girls who are very interested in him. He also must restrain himself from the charms of Dora Doll, but lets himself in for trouble by trying to help Annie the saloon’s singer. Fights and chases, punctuate the comedy arbitrated by a stuttering sheriff named Noel Roquevert and a town boss named Walter Black and his henchmen who are in search of a hidden treasure.
