An advertising film made for Colman's of Norwich for Colman's mustard.

A couple are asleep in bed. A thief breaks in and looks around the kitchen. He finds what he is looking for but breaks a milk jug that wakes the couple. The husband investigates reluctantly while the thief tries to get out. The husband and the thief meet and recognise each other. The thief explains that he is only looking for the mustard. In the thief's house, his wife, who has a cold, is delighted to see the mustard and takes a mustard bath. In the first house the lack of mustard spoils the meal. The thief and his wife arrive with the mustard and a happy ending ensues. "All's right with the world as long as I have my mustard", says the husband. The film ends with a picture of a tin of Colman's mustard.
