Short Summary (English)

Accompanying a CDR fashion team, journalist Thomas takes a plane to an haute couture festival in an exclusive Mediterranean seaside resort. A French Padre, who could be mistaken for Thomas's twin brother, is a fellow passenger. Precisely for this reason, the journalist is plunged into the most extraordinary and very precarious situations.

In fact, Thomas is confused with a French fashion designer, a thorn in the flesh of his competitors from Rome and London, who therefore try to eliminate him. Even the "boss" of the English "gang", a certain Miss Mabel, tries to seduce him with her feminine charms. But especially in this respect, Thomas is not susceptible as he is in love with charming Eva, whose uncle, however keeps a very watchful eye on her.

Finally the self-styled Padre reveals himself as the couturier in question and Thomas even manages to save him from his competitors and pursuers. He boards the home-bound plane as a "hero" and is bowled over when Eva turns out to be one of the fight attendants.

Short Summary (German)

Der Journalist Thomas Ahrens reist mit einer DDR-Delegation zu einem internationalen Modefestival. Doch statt seiner Arbeit nachgehen zu können, muß er sich im wahrsten Sinne des Wortes seiner Haut erwehren. Er wird mit einem französischen Couturier verwechselt, den die Konkurrenz aus London und Rom auszuschalten versucht. Clever entzieht er sich den Angriffen, gibt auch dem mit raffinierten Mitteln vorgehenden weiblichen Boß der englischen "Gentlemen", Miss Mabel, das Nachsehen. Und er verliebt sich auch noch in die von ihrem Onkel scharf bewachte hübsche Eva, die er am Ende sogar bekommt. Den echten Franzosen, der inzwischen enttarnt wurde, rettet er zu guter Letzt vor seinen finsteren Konkurrenten.
