In the French countryside, an elegant woman pays a nostalgic visit to her adolescent girls school, where she passionately remembers her first fiery and forbidden romance...the story of Therese and Isabelle. The tenderness of these two lonely girls' erotic awakenings sensuously blossoms amidst the hothouse atmosphere of their repressive environment. Having both experienced the clumsy and cruel lovemaking attempts of a local lothario, Therese and Isabelle grow closer and closer to each other - until that fateful moment when they become lovers.
While revisiting the grounds of the French boarding school she attended as a child, a glamorous married woman recalls the forbidden romance she shared with her schoolmate Isabelle. Based on a novel by Violette Leduc. Regarded as director Metzger's best film.
