Set in the lower echelons of 1860s Paris, a sexually repressed beautiful young woman is trapped into a loveless marriage to her sickly cousin by her domineering aunt. She spends her days confined behind the counter of a small shop and her evenings watching her aunt play dominoes with an eclectic group. After she meets her husband's alluring friend, she embarks on an illicit affair that leads to tragic consequences.
