Etienne Alexis, a candidate for president of the new Europe, is a scientist promoting artificial insemination. Thanks to his wealthy background, he will succeed. To celebrate his engagement to a German cousin, he hosts an aseptic picnic, where mother nature asserts herself. A shepherd's flute conjures a windstorm that throws Alexis together with the luscious Nénette, farm lass who wants to have a baby but is unimpressed with men.
