Synopsis

Therese is a ravishing, but sexually repressed young woman trapped into a loveless marriage to her sickly cousin Camille by her domineering aunt Madame Raquin. Therese spends her days as a virtual shut-in, confined behind the counter of a small shop by day and watching Madame play dominos in the evening. But when she meets her husband's alluring childhood friend Laurent, everything changes. What begins as a thrillingly illicit, clandestine affair will unravel into a shocking set of tragic circumstances for everyone.
