François Donge, a rich entrepreneur and womanizer, meets a young woman nicknamed Bébé and marries her. Ten years later, as he lays dying on a hospital bed after being poisoned by his wife, he relives their life together and realizes how much the young woman who once adored him suffered from the anguish caused by his many affairs and indifference.
