Collection of ten films directed by Éric Rohmer. In 'The Marquise of O' (1976) the beautiful widow Marquise of O (Edith Clever) is captured and assaulted by Russian soldiers.
Unconscious during the attack, it is only later that she discovers she is pregnant, and her initial shame and embarrassment about what has happened gradually escalates into panic and desperation.

She takes along her 15-year-old cousin Pauline (Amanda Langlet), a sensitive and fragile girl on the verge of womanhood.
At the beach the two meet up with Pierre (Pascal Greggory), Marion's humourless and obsessive ex-lover, who offers to teach them windsurfing and introduces them to his friend Henri (Féodor Atkine).
