Angela is a stripper living in Paris with her husband, Emile, who is a bookseller. She wants a child, he doesn't. Emile's obsession with cycling interferes with the love of his wife. Angela embarks on a dangerous game to try and reignite Emile's passion for her, by involving Alfred, a good friend of theirs, in her quest for a baby. Alfred is in love with Angela and, it seems, more than willing to be the third corner of his love triangle.
