A struggling American writer (England) and a fellow American expatriate (Mandylor) begin a sordid affair among the chaos and discord of 1940 Paris, France on the brink of World War II.

In announcing the invasion of Germany, it is stated that the German army has invaded Belgium and crossed the French border, occupying the city of Lille. In World War I the German troops crossing into France were advancing first towards the Somme river. It is only later, in their advance towards Dunkirk, that Lille was occupied.
