Set in 1930 in French Indochina against a backdrop of political tension between the French and Vietnamese. Eliane Devries is the seemingly repressed owner of a prosperous rubber plantation. Her steely exterior, however, is only a mask intended to hide her torrid love affairs from upper class society. But when her adopted Indochinese daughter innocently falls in love with Eliane's secret lover, the scandalous lovers' triangle threatens to destroy their entire family.
