Andrew Harris was a successful property developer until the financial crash came and the police looked closely into his business dealings. His wife helps him to hide out in a hotel in the South of France, working as a traditional female maid. Left penniless and isolated he is made to work from morning til night with harsh, menial chores. Eventually he is transformed into a prim, starchy personal maid to the hotel owner, who forces him to give more than the normal duties of a hotel maid. When his wife comes back to rescue him, he begins to realise that she is not prepared to allow him to go back to his old identity.
