Jeanne lives in Dijon with her boring husband Henri. She escapes to Paris regularly where she can spend time with her friend Maggy and Raoul, Maggy’s friend and Jeanne’s lover. Henri insists Maggy and Raoul are invited to Dijon to stay, but on that day Jeanne’s car breaks down and she is given a lift home by Bernard, who is consequently invited to stay for dinner. Afterwards, ignoring her husband and spurning the advances of Raoul, she spends some time, and ultimately the night, with the attentive Bernard.
