Napoleon has been banished to St Helena, where his British captors ensure he is well fed and looked after during his incarceration. However, plans are afoot to rescue the French general. His doppelganger Eugene Lenormand is smuggled onto St Helena and swaps places with Napoleon, who is then smuggled off the island on a commercial ship. Once Napoleon is safely back in France, Eugene has been instructed to reveal his true identity. Alas, the fake Napoleon begins to enjoy his life of luxury.
