Jock, a well-to-do fishmonger, brings a woman called Odette from Saint-Brieuc to the small port in Brittany where he lives. Kériadec, a ruined squire, and Maurice, his bastard brother, are fascinated by the new arrival. Although Odette becomes the squire's mistress, she is madly in love with Maurice and agrees to become his instrument of retaliation against Kériadec. Maurice sets the date for his revenge on same day as Jock and Odette's wedding, and a happy celebration turns into stark tragedy.
