Raymonde suspects her husband, Victor Emmanuel, of infidelity and turns to her best friend, Lucienne, to help her gain proof. They concoct a play, based on a perfumed letter, to trap him at the Hotel Coq d’Or in Montretout. In true Feydeau fashion the plan misfires and is complicated by confused identities, revolving beds and a great many doors.
