Colin is an ambitious US investment banker. One of his potential clients, a rich sheikh, is a passionate pigeon fancier who has been trying to buy a champion pigeon from Flanders, but the owner has hitherto been stubbornly refusing his offers. In an attempt to gain the sheikh’s business, Colin proposes a deal: if he can convince the owner to sell his pigeon, then the sheikh does business with him.

Colin sets off for Flanders and pretends to be a teacher looking for the grave of his great-grandfather who died in World War I. When he meets the stubborn owner, and his beautiful granddaughter, he realizes that his assignment will be more difficult than he had hoped.
