Set in 19th century France, this newly restored melodrama finds a web of attraction and jealousy in an all-girls boarding school, and while not addressing lesbianism directly, it is the story of the two mistresses of the house, their competition for the affections of their students, and the students' discovery of the dangerous game of love and attraction.
Fin du XIXe siècle, dans une pension de jeunes filles près de Fontainebleau. Mesdemoiselles Julie et Cara sont les directrices de l'établissement. Depuis quelque temps, l'harmonie ne règne plus et la pension est divisée entre deux clans. Une nouvelle venue, Olivia, se rallie à Mademoiselle Julie, objet de tous les désirs, et lui voue amour et admiration.
