Un brillant notaire parisien, Alfred L’Ambert, épris d’une danseuse de ballet de quatorze ans est provoqué en duel par son rival turc après une altercation. Ayant perdu son nez au cours du duel, le notaire se tourne alors vers un chirurgien pour une greffe de peau. Le donneur est un auvergnat simple du nom de « Chébachtien Romagné ».

The donor is a simple man from the Auvergne with whom the notary is forced to spend thirty days, his noze being literally glued to the arm of the man. But even after this term, his bad fortune doesn’t come to an end…
