Professor Jérôme has been performing some experiments on suspended animation. Edith, his fiancée, attempts to persuade him to give up this work and go into the soft drink business. On his final day in the laboratory, Monette, Professor Jérôme's assistant, accidentally spills a jar containing an experimental solution. A pet dog drinks the liquid and is reduced in size to a statue 3 inches high. Jérôme restores its size by immersing it in salt water. During the course of their work, Jérôme and Monette fall in love. When Edith demands entry into the laboratory, Monette, not wanting to be found with Jérôme, swallows some of the solution and is reduced to a 3-inch nude statue which Jérôme hides in his pocket. The next day Jérôme takes Monette to the ocean, immerses her in salt water, and returns her to normal size. Using their discovery they have many intimate liaisons, and Jérôme decides to abandon his fiancée and remain with Monette. [According to French sources, Edith becomes aware of their discovery and places the statue of Monette on an ocean liner bound for the United States, but Jérôme follows in a motorboat and rescues her.]
