Pierre's wife Clotilde has been very ill for years, but when she dies suddenly in an apparent suicide, the town gossips believe there may be more than meets the eye. In the meantime, Paul proposes a shady land deal to 'benefit the town, ' and wants Pierre's support. But then he discovers proof of his wife's affair.
