A young woman living on the Left Bank of Paris is a pickpocket and a prostitute. Running away from a man she has robbed, she sees a young street photographer and plants the stolen wallet on him. Before she goes to prison, the two fall in love. Upon her release, they are married and things look rosy until she reverts to thievery to earn money for her husband's studio. She then commits murder to hide her shady past (she is already married to another man) from her naive partner.
