On the way home from a conference in Paris, Mr. Johansen accidentally finds himself in possession of an insignificant little French book. He has no idea where the book came from or what it concerns, but he decides he should secretly smuggle it through customs. Thereafter, the book passes through the hands of 5 different people, and causes unexpected conflicts, suspicions and misunderstandings for each of them.
