The story happened in July 1944, when France was still occupied by the German military government. The writer, also a communist Robert Antelme, one of the important person of the French resistance was arrested and exiled. Robert’s young wife, Marguerite Duras, is also a writer serving the resistance, who is torn between the fear of not being able to contact her husband and her secret adultery relationship with her husband’s comrade, Dyonis. She went to see Pierre Rabier, a French official in Gestapo and was willing to do anything to bring Robert back. She began a vague relationship with this suspiciously man, the only one who could help her find her husband. When the war came to an end, when the soldiers returned from the concentration camps, Marguerite began to feel a tingling desire, and something was gradually fading in silence in the middle of the day Paris liberated.
