A young composer (Jacques) is stifled by his social and family environment. He wants to leave and begin life again elsewhere. With a ballet troupe dancing to his music… he goes on tour in the provinces.

They live in hotel rooms and trains but also in dressing rooms where the excitement of the ballerinas reigns. Among themselves the girls discuss their problems., experiences and hopes in crude language.

He falls in love with one of the dancers (Catherine), and a terribly confused but ‘mad love affair’ begins. Maybe this is a chance to find happiness, but the tour ends. It was a brief encounter. At the Gare de Lyon station, Michele, his wife awaits him. Jacques lets Catherine go.
