In suburban Paris, young François (Jean-Claude Drouot) appears to live a happy, contented existence with his wife, Thérèse (Claire Drouot), and their two small children. Despite his apparent satisfaction, François takes a mistress named Emilie (Marie-France Boyer) and, remarkably, doesn’t feel the least bit of remorse for his philandering. While he is able to justify loving both women, François’s infidelity results in tragic consequences for both him and his family.
