    Malika, a young prostitute, is brutally attacked in the street by some thugs. Paul and Hélène, a conventional couple safe and secure in their locked car, look on. Overcome by remorse, Hélène then searches for the young woman and finds her lying in a coma in hospital. Hélène decides to look after Malika, thereby abandoning her husband and son.
