Madeleine decides to steal a pair of designer shoes from the boutique where she works. As she walks around town in the stylish footwear, a Czech medical student called Jaronil mistakes her for a working girl. Madeleine decides to see where the misunderstanding leads - as it happens, to a steady second income. Jaronil is smitten and marries Madeleine, and he spirits her away from the streets of Paris and her clients to Prague where the marriage crumbles.
