France, the inter-war years. A young dance mistress escapes criminal conviction and psychiatric treatment and returns to the safety of a private all-girls boarding school, and her special relationship with the headmistress who assures that all her girls get very special treatment. Within this claustrophobic climate of love, lust and jealousy a tale of murder unfolds. A girl goes missing, a dangerous and elusive police inspector haunts the school, the priest conducts some very strange religious rites and there is a midnight party that culminates in cross-dressing and finally death.
