Fadinard is on the way to his wedding, when his horse picks up and eats a straw hat. The owner of the hat is a married woman who, at the time, is in the embrace of a French officer, Lieutenant Tavernier. The officer follows Fadinard to his home and demands that he replace the hat, so that his mistress can return home to her husband without arousing suspicion. Fearing that Tavernier will wreck his new apartment, Fadinard hastens to his wedding, using every opportunity he can to find a replacement hat. When he finally manages to find one, things become even more complicated.
