Isabelle (Anicee Alvina) seems unable to sustain any kind of relationship in this sexual drama. Perhaps this is due to her father's untimely suicide when she was an adolescent, or maybe it is because she was raped as a teenager by a German officer. In the film, she becomes the mistress of a diplomat's son, but cannot continue with him after she tells of her tragic past; a relationship with her boss is equally short-lived.
