On the death of arms dealer Constantin Bernard Shah, his lovely widow Amaranth is the only source for the patents on atomic weapons. From the day of his funeral, Amaranth (Mireille Darc) is pursued by his fake French cousin Francis Lagneau (Lino Ventura), his fake German psychoanalist Hans Müller, his fake Russian step-brother Boris Vassillief (Francis Blanche), and his fake Swiss confessor Louis Arbessier (Bernard Blier). The plot is complicated by the wealthy American Commodore O'Brien (Jess Hahn) and many Chinese spies.
