The life of an ordinary little town is stirred up by the rumours that a mysterious Government Inspector will soon come from the capital. Nervous officials are frantically trying to hide the evidence of their crimes and misuse. The Governor drills the local authorities and subordinate officials; the Charity Commissioner is busy with throwing patients out of the infirmary; the Inspector of Schools improves school performance reports through sheer force of his will; the Judge is obsessed with hiding embezzlement and bribes at his department. Will these swindlers escape their fate?
