Cleo, a singer and hypochondriac, becomes increasingly worried that she might have cancer while awaiting test results from her doctor.
In the scenes filmed on locations in the streets of Paris, the front of a cinema hall with a poster of "Elmer Gantry" , starring Burt Lancaster can be seen. This movie was released in France in May 1961.
