A hedonistic recluse seeking to control the lives of the few who faithfully serve her is plunged into a sea of madness as her paranoid suspicions tighten their grip on her sanity in this sensual drama starring Leslie Caron and The Dukes of Hazard's Catherine Bach. A voluptuous but reclusive widow who confines herself to life inside her giant mansion following the death of her husband, Nicole (Caron) uses her money and sexuality to pull the strings of those closest to her until the arrival of a handsome suitor and an aspiring dancer (Bach) find her wanton ways fading. When Nicole begins to suspect her newfound lover of being unfaithful, however, her momentary calm explodes into a hysterical madness that threatens to drive her to murder.
