The film tells the story of a young French woman's struggle for happiness and the turbulence of post WWII Europe. As an act of political betrayal, Andreas, Jeanne's lover, kills Jeanne's father. Andreas sends Jeanne to live with her family in Paris, where he hopes to join her, but he is preceded by the sinister Khalibiev, who pursues Jeanne, proposes marriage to her blind cousin, and murders Jeanne's uncle. Andreas is accused of the crime and is destined for the guillotine if Jeanne cannot convince Khalibiev to offer testimony in his defense (not realizing that he, in fact, is the murderer).
