In this standard murder mystery with a twist, an attractive woman, Marta (Lea Massari), picks up a man who has just been released from jail. The former prisoner is anxious for company but does not want to violate the conditions of his release (he cannot go into Paris). Marta and her daughter take the ex-con to their home, where Marta and he then decide to go out for awhile together. When they get back, they discover her husband lying dead on the couch. The former convict has no intention of calling the police and takes off immediately -- though he comes back later to spy on the place and finds out that all is not what it first seemed.
