In this Belgian film, love must be its own reward, because other circumstances steadfastly refuse to cooperate. Paul (Roger Van Hool) and Pierre (Andre Van den Heuvel) are homeless vagabonds. Louisa (Willeke Van Ammelrooy) is the rebellious daughter of a nobleman. She encounters and is attracted to both Paul and Pierre, and the loving threesome set up housekeeping in an abandoned farm. The local inhabitants will not tolerate these goings-on and burn them out of the farmhouse. Louisa returns to her family mansion. As long as she says nothing about what went on while she was away, she is welcomed there. As soon as she confides her love for these two men, who are still around, she is booted out. They take off down the road together, only to meet with tragedy in a German poison-gas attack.
