In this routine melodrama by director Herve Bromberger, Francoise Arnoul stars as a somewhat confused young woman from an impoverished family who marries well out of her economic class. Life on the leisurely side eventually becomes boring, and so she decides to cruise back to her old neighborhood one night and check up on the action there. She discovers that her former boyfriend is living a shady existence and then circumstances, including a blackmail plot, place her precariously on the fence as she is forced to decide whether to return to her old life or continue with her marriage.
