Every year the men's magazine selects a Playboy of the Year, but due to a computer error a shy accountant is chosen by mistake. As he has already been announced as the winner, the magazine decides to build up his public persona to justify their choice. While engaging on a tour of cities, he is pursued by a female journalist convinced that he is a fraud who should be exposed.
