Internal contradictions about the nature and quality of romantic love battle it out in this routine drama about Elizabeth (Lucile Saint-Simon) a young woman with a problem. Her parents own a hotel at a ski resort and so Elizabeth encounters more than her share of ardent, admiring young men. She consistently puts them off but then buckles under the charms of a lusty Don Juan who is not so much interested in finding a Juliet as he is in finding a passing night of pleasure. Elizabeth ends up heartbroken but unbowed and in rebellion she marries an aspiring pianist. Seemingly settled down at last, she soon finds that both appearances and a marriage contract are not enough to extinguish her old flame.
