She is kidnapped and because of the strong ties between France and Lugash, Chief Inspector Dreyfus is called in to find her. He is hampered by the local police officer Jacques and is amazed when he finds that Jacques is Maria's son. He is terrified that Jacques is Clouseau's son, especially as he is showing Clouseau-ish behaviour. Both Jacques and Dreyfus set out to find the missing Princess...
