In the aftermath of the 1968 student riots that led to widespread strikes and threatened to topple the government, a young woman retreats to a country farmhouse. Her respite is a result of some unnamed incident which profoundly disturbs the girl but is never entirely revealed. She spends most of her time writing letters in the nude and dreaming of being reunited with her revolutionary boyfriend. She loves him but can't understand the fervor of his political convictions; nor does she understand much of anything about social reform. The only thing certain is that her life has been put on hold because of situations she does not care to understand and probably never will.
