Philippe Tardieu makes the acquaintance of Senta who's one of the bridesmaids at his sister's wedding. It's love at first sight for both and, soon, Philippe spends all his nights with Senta, neglecting his mother and his younger sister he used to take care of. Senta's love is very exclusive and demanding. One day, she tells Philippe that, if he really loves her, he should kill a man, any man, for her.

The next day, in order to please Senta and as a joke, Philippe says to her that he's responsible for the murder of the bum related by the newspapers of the day. Senta believes him and says that she will do the same for him. When the corpse of another man is found in the surrounding area, a panicking Philippe starts to wonder whether Senta could have done it.
