A film chosen by Saïd Ben Saïd (Dream festival)

Victor Berthier, a good man but also a very jealous one, killed his wife in a fit of jealousy. After serving a few years in a chain gang, he is released for good behavior. He feels very happy to be able to return to Paris and to meet Lise, his daughter, again. But, to his dismay, he finds that Lise, through the fault of André, her lover and pimp, has unwillingly committed a murder.

The 3rd movie, stayed for a while invisible, from the most poetic and unrecognized french director from the '30, at the begining of talking pictures
