This drama is set in Cambodia and centers upon an orphaned French girl who was raised by a native family after they found her wandering alone in the forest. The young woman is preparing to marry her foster brother, but then the government informs her that her real brother has been searching for her for many years. She then learns that she was orphaned in 1943 during a Japanese attack on her family's plantation. At first her brother only wants to have her love him as a brother, but then a darker passion flares and the girl becomes frightened. Fortunately, her fiance comes to her aid. They flee to the woods with the enraged brother driving behind them. He drives too fast and his car skids off the road and explodes in a great fireball.
