Patrice travels to a remote island to find a young wife for his uncle Marc. There, he meets a beautiful blond named Nathalie, who agrees to return to the mainland to marry Patrice's uncle, if only to escape a life of extreme poverty. The marriage takes place, much to the chagrin on Patrice's aunt Gertrude, who lives in Marc's chateau with her timid husband and her malicious son Achille, a dwarf. Embittered because March has robbed her of her inheritance, Gertrude intends to profit from Marc's obvious affection for Nathalie to exact her revenge. While Patrice and Nathalie are relaxing together, the dwarf pours liquid from a bottle marked "poison" into their drinks. But the liquid is no poison; rather, it's a powerful love potion. Can anyone say "Tristan and Isolde"?
