Penniless intellectual Alexandre spends his time in Left Bank cafés and agonizing over two women: his mistress Marie who supports him even though she is aware of Veronika, a compulsively promiscuous nurse who slips in and out of their bed. An exploration of the personal chaos wrought on French bohemia by post '68 political disillusion and the sexual revolution.
