Fich is a photographer who doesn't really earn a living. One day he comes across his old school pal Mario, who works foe a senator whose daughter Cléo he has married. But Mario is no longer interested in his wife and has an affair with her young sister Ariane. Finch takes some photos and hopes to blackmail him in order to get money from the senator. Mario asks Ariane for her help. Finch pays himself on Ariane who learns about truth of the situation.
To punish Mario, Ariane asks him to teach the facts of love to her friend Julie. The maid starts to blackmail her boss (Mario) too. Cléo guesses about the truth and asks her husband to perform his marital duty. Cornered by the four women (ie wife, lover, wife's friend and maid) Mario gives up the whole thing.The senator is reelected and his daughter congratulates him while pushing her submissive husband in a wheel-chair.
This is credited as being Bruce L. Jean's first film. This film is also credited as being unusually tender.
