Francis, a manufacturer of toilet seats in a wet provincial town, considers his woes. His workers are on strike, the taxman is due, his health is not as might be, and his wife is planning an inordinately expensive wedding for their daughter. Then there is a national appeal on television from a distraught, but attractive, wife and family for her missing husband, who just happens to be Francis's double. He is persuaded to assume the role, which redoubles his domestic troubles. Finally he heads south for life with the other man's wife on a poultry farm.
