In a series of vivid images and scenes, Billie recalls her medievally rustic early childhood in Germany living alone with her eccentric father. One day she is reclaimed by her mother, a woman of charm and beauty who is in love with a handsome youngItalian, Alessandro. They are naturally drawn to the exhilarating and stylish society of the Cote D'Azur in the 1920s. Billie witnesses the fleeting relationships and painful betrayals of the people around her, and it is her acute awareness of love and the failure of love that brings Billie to a new understanding of her own life.
