It was shot at the Saint-Maurice Studios in Paris. The film's sets were designed by the art director Raymond Druart.


Madame Pierre, known as Mammy, dotes on her grandson Maurice. He has been away in Canada for ten years, and is a disreputable lowlife. However her husband has created a false image of a decent, happily-married architect for her benefit. When news comes of Maurice's disappearance in a plane crash, Mammy is so distraught that her husband hires a young couple to pose as Maurice and his invented wife Marthe, in the hope that his wife will accept them as real.
