Synopsis:
A nightwatchman who lets a thief escape with the loot because he fears assault is branded a coward and exiled from his city. On the road, he is mistaken for a French general and is taken to the front to fight the Germans. He is afraid to tell them that he is not who they think he is, so he goes along with the duplicity and bolsters their sagging morale so much that the French troops pull a victory from the maw of defeat. He is proclaimed a national hero and he confesses to the crowd that he is not the man they think he is. He sets off down the road once again, but this time with his head held high, as he has finally done one brave thing in his life.
