Millionaire Harvey Gotham, Canadian heir to a salmon fortune, is living in a small cottage in France attempting to finish his obscure work on the Book of Job. His beautiful wife Effie stole two bars of chocolate. This event, although seemingly minor, ended the marriage. Since then, Harvey has continued to work on his book, and Effie, it seems, has disappeared, and she may have become a terrorist.
