Life in an elegant Parisian brothel in the early twentieth century. The madam essentially
 owns the women: their expenses exceed earnings, they are in debt. They face 
problems of pregnancy, opium, age, and violent clients. One reads sociology at 
her peril. Occasionally, a client talks of marriage. There are also friendships and 
affection among the women. The madam is in a dispute with her landlord and 
calls on influential clients to help. There's a picnic one summer day, a wake, 
and an evening in masks. Have they expectations? In a coda, we watch a
 street scene in contemporary Paris.
