While taking a train trip, the Chaplinesque Tora-San comes to the aid of suicidal businessman Akira Emoto. When the businessman expresses a desire to visit Vienna, Tora-San obligingly goes along with him. Tora-San doesn’t enjoy the Austrian city as much as he’d expected, but his visit is brightened by his romance with tour guide Keiko Takeshita. Alas, Tora-San is once more left alone at film’s end, though there’s always the prospect of new adventures just around the next corner.
