Charles (Gerard Blain) is a naive provincial with bourgeois aspirations. He moves to Paris and stays with his urbane and decadent cousin (Jean-Claude Brialy) and begins to study law while his hedonistic relative continues to drift aimlessly through life seeking nothing but pleasure. When Charles falls for one of Paul's partygirl friends, Paul decides to step in and put the relationship to an end; his intentions are good, but the consequences are tragic. Chabrol's second film earned him international recognition and cemented his position as a fresh and important talent in the fledgling French New Wave, along with contemporaries Jean-Luc Godard and Francois Truffaut.
