Alone and drunk, Betty, is led to a Paris restaurant by a stranger. Here she meets an older woman, Laure, with whom she strikes up an instant rapport. The two women seem to have suffered the same lot in their lives. Laure takes Betty back to her hotel and helps to cure the young woman of her depression and alcoholism. Little by little, Betty pieces together her recent history and realizes that perhaps her life is not worth living. Then she meets Mario (Jean-Francoise Garreaud), Laure’s lover.
