On a Spanish island, a young French woman has died after falling from a cliff. The local police inspector is charged with solving the case quickly and quietly, so as not to disturb tourism. From here on, the tale is largely told in flashbacks as the detective seeks to find out whether this was an accidental death, murder, or suicide. If it was a suicide, her disaffected ex-soldier boyfriend might have contributed to her death. Perhaps the local inhabitants, resentful of tourists (and especially hippies), somehow caused her to fall. Maybe a local peasant was too persistent in his attentions, and she died escaping him.
