Plot Synopsis:

 Two cousins (Jean Taconnat & Marcel Lornans) are traveling from Cette, France to Oran, Algeria to join the 5th Chaussers d'Afrique. On their trip across the Mediterranean, they meet the Désirandelle family and their friend Clovis Dardentor. Dardentor is accompanying the family on their trip to Oran, where the son (Agathocle) is to meet the girl (Louise Elissane) whom it was arranged long ago that he would marry. A discussion on board ship gives Jean Taconnat the idea that either he or his cousin should save the life of Clovis (from fight, flood or flame), so that legally they can be adopted. On a tour of the Algerian countryside, Jean waits for an opportunity to save Clovis and Marcel becomes enamored with Louise.
