Plot[edit | edit source]

A young sergeant of the Royal Guard (Robert Steiner) and a prostitute (Maria Allard) get married after a brief passionate idyll. Very soon, however, the influence of their environment strains their relationship, mainly because of the woman's occupation. The petit bourgeois environment, the lumpen elements, the social fringes and petty interests stifle the young couple, which appears to want to rebel, but doesn't succeed.
