Alain Moreau is a singer who has been playing the provincial dance hall circuit for many years, with his ex-wife managing his career. One night, he meets Marion, a young, attractive but troubled woman, trying to rebuild her life with her son, after a failed marriage. It results in a night of passion, Marion soon regrets it but it leaves Alain quite enamoured. In trying to win back her affection, they soon realise how much they are alike and share a tentative bond that evidently brings them closer together.
