Nelly is a dissatisfied woman, married to an older man who is an advertising executive. Middle
class, well brought up and well-established, she is exasperated with her dreary, orderly
and uneventful life. One night, in a dance hall, she meets Loulou, a man on the fringes who
seduces her with his unconventional ways. She becomes his lover and leaves her husband
for him, hoping for happiness…. But her husband won’t give up.
