Academy Award winners Katharine Hepburn and Cary Grant star as a couple of competing young grifters in the story of a young woman disguised as a man to evade the law--with all the romantic complications her ruse brings to Sylvia Scarlett. When Sylvia Scarlett (Hepburn) and her father (Edmund Gwenn) must flee France one step ahead of the authorities, she cuts her hair, dons men's clothes and passes herself as Sylvester Scarlett. But crossing the Channel, jewel smuggler Jimmy Monkley (Grant) rats on her to divert attention away from himself. Narrowly escaping capture, Scarlett and Monkley find themselves cooperating on a heist ... and caught in a web of romantic entanglements only made more complicated by Scarlett's ambiguous sexual identity.
