Beloved French comic Fernadel displays his flair for the dramatic in this somber drama. Quantin (Fernadel) is a mild-mannered husband whose wife Isabelle (Lilli Palmer) constantly bothers him for not having enough money to spend on their daughters. When the eldest daughter is unable to come home for her birthday, Quantin and a young teacher go to the city to bring her home for the celebration. It is there he discovers that his beloved daughter has become a prostitute. His daughter is never shown on camera as the father and the teacher who loves her painfully discover her sordid secret.
