children, Zouzou and Jean are paired in a travelling circus as twins: she's
dark, he's light. After they've grown, he treats her as if she was his sister,
but she's in love with him. In Paris, he's a music hall electrician; she's a
laundress who delivers clean underwear to the hall. She introduces him to
Claire, her friend at work, and the couple fall in love. Jean conspires to get
the show's star out of town and for the theatre manager to see the
high-spirited Zouzou perform. When Jean's accused of murder and Zouzou needs
money to mount his defence, she pleads to go on stage. Her talents may save the
show, but can anything save her dream of life with Jean?
