Helene and Paul, a bourgeois couple, witness the assault of a young prostitute, Malika, by a gang of pimps. Paul refuses to get involved but Helene later finds Malika and helps her to hide and regain her health. Together they piece together Malika's past and her devious schemes to escape the life she has fallen into. The two then plan and carry out an amusing series of deceptions to save Malika's younger sister from the same fate, and enact poetic justice on both the gang and Helene's apathetic husband Paul.Coline Serreau's tale of female solidarity is both a comic satire on the superficiality of French bourgeois life and an angry condemnation of the exploitation and oppression of immigrant women.
