Goto is an island monarchy that's been out of contact with the rest of Europe since an 1887 tidal inundation. The three leaders since then, Gotos I, II and III have kept the island 'safe' from outside corruption. The place is a total dictatorship, where the present leader Goto III (Pierre Brasseur) is given total authority over everything - who does what jobs, who lives and who dies. The island has no culture save for a pair of miserable musicians. Goto also keeps a royal house of prostitution, where the clients take their numbers and wait their turn. Two convicted criminals are paired off in a blood sport game. The survivor Grozo (Guy Saint-Jean) is given a job polishing the royal boots and setting flytraps. Meanwhile, Goto's wife Glyssia (Ligia Branice) pledges him eternal love but is carrying on a hot affair with the horse groom and captain of the guard, Gono (Jean-Pierre Andréani). Grozo soon grows ambitious and takes steps to make his position more secure - by murdering his immediate superior, the senior flycatcher, and conspiring to have Glyssia for himself!
