Set in 1890, an innocent English teenager, Olivia (Olivia), arrives at a small boarding school outside Paris. The majority of the pupils there are divided into two clans: those that are devoted to the headmistress, Miss Julie (Feuillère), and those who follow Miss Cara (Simon), an emotionally manipulative invalid who is obsessed with Miss Julie. Olivia develops an infatuation for Miss Julie and their relation sets Miss Cara ablaze with jealousy.
