Antoine de Tillois leaves his puritanical wife and in Paris becomes known as King Toto, leader of the bohemian set. Their daughter, Louise, spends 8 months of each year with her mother in Blois and 4 in Paris with her father, her sole concern being to see them reunited. Although Louise has fallen in love with Robert Le Rivarol, she vows not to marry until she accomplishes her aim; consequently, Toto pretends to reform and announces he is giving up his Paris life to return to his wife. Merinville, her accountant, and his nephew--both after Louise's money--discover that Toto has been corresponding with the Countess de Sano, his latest mistress; they try to blackmail Toto and scheme to get an annulment of Louise's marriage, but Toto thwarts their plot. When the countess absconds with her husband's secretary, Toto and his wife are happily reconciled.
