In Paris, there is a plot to steal the Mona Lisa from The Louvre. At the same time, a convict escapes from an English prison, only to take refuge at the nearby boarding school where his son is in residence. The boarding school's headmaster, Dr. Benjamin Twist, not only unwittingly helps the convict get to France, but assists in their robbery plans as well. In the end, however, Twist is proclaimed a hero, when the painting is returned to the museum.
