William, a financial analyst, lives in the same flat he was born in, does the same job his father did and has even hired his father's secretary at his death. One day, a young woman -Anna- enters William's office, sits down and starts to talk about her private life and the sexual problems she's experiencing with her husband Marc. Anna had an appointment with Dr. Monnier, a psychiatrist working on the same floor, and rang at the wrong door.

Before William has the chance to say something to Anna, she gets out and tells him she'll be back on the next week. She'll soon learn the truth about William's real profession but doesn't mind and keeps going to see William. In fact, both enjoy these hours during which they confess to each other very intimate things. William has also begun to see Dr. Monnier in order to be sure that the unusual relation he has with Anna is alright.

After a few weeks, Anna seems to look better thanks to their discussions and William becomes less serious and lighter about his work and life in general. He has fallen in love with Anna and wants her to leave her husband.
