A 6-year-old girl, Sarah, runs away from her orphanage. She does not want to part with her little dog, Toto, who gives him a lot of affection. She met then Aurélien Brada, former Formula 1 driver, whose career was broken due to an accident. Aurélien Brada decides to protect little Sarah in her runaway. They cross on their way various characters (a mad escape from an asylum, a breeder polecat, representatives of authority, a noble driving a Rolls Royce, Dédé-la-Terreur, nuns ...) and are pursued relentlessly by Commissioner Franquette.

He is a very prolific author (even three films in a year) who often writes and produces his own films, often linked to current events and events with an anarchist vein.
The son of Polish immigrants (his father, Adam Mokiejewski, was of Jewish origin, while his mother, Janine Zylinska, was a non-practicing Catholic), Mocky began his film career as an actor at the age of 15, starring in The troublemakers, God needs of men, The stragglers (1955) and La fossa dei disperati (1959).
