Synopsis

Mister Freedom, a United States sheriff dedicated to law and order, changes into his freedom-fighting costume and brutally apprehends a group of Negro looters before being ordered by his superior, Dr. Freedom, to save France from Communism. He is taken by Marie-Madeleine to the headquarters of the French Freedom Movement, where he stirs masses of spectators with his fiery speech. Mister Freedom then contacts the United States Ambassador, whose office is located in a huge supermarket, and suggests that they grant freedom to France. He next visits Moujik Man, a Russian, and suggests a division of France. Their negotiations are interrupted by Red China Man and Christ Man, who knock Mister Freedom unconscious and place him in a jail cell. Mister Freedom escapes by killing Marie Rouge and then discovers that he has been betrayed by Marie-Madeleine, a Russian double agent. With all of his followers slaughtered, Mister Freedom decides that France is not ready for freedom, and he destroys the country, as well as himself, with an atom bomb.
