In this comedy, set in Paris, a devout communist is slowly seduced into
becoming a capitalist by a persuasively pretty young woman. The tale
begins as the young man shoots at a banker and then flees the police. He
runs into the woman's apartment, and for some reason, she decides to let
him stay. She then tells him that she is the banker's ex-wife, and they
begin to converse; she is fascinated by communist philosophies and in
turn shares her views on capitalism with him. He comes to like them and
so abandons his other ideologies for the bourgeois life.
