In post-war Britain following the detonation of an unexploded bomb the inhabitants of a London street discover riches and artefacts. These documents state that they are citizens of the medieval kingdom of Burgundy. When the government attempts to claim the fortune, the citizens of Burgundy declare their independence. This light-hearted yet anarchic Ealing jewel is considered the greatest of writer T.E.B Clarke's six comedies for the studio.
