The story :
Helen (Dominique Blanc) and her husband Gerard (Patrick Catalifo) are at the Paris Orly Airport, about to board a plane for Buenos Aires where Gerard is starting a new job. At the check-in counter, he informs her that he wants to start a new life and intends to leaves without her.

Helen goes into shock and from then on haunts the airport like a ghost, never resuming her former identity. A new Helene slowly emerges through a series of encounters.

Georges plays the part of a businessman arriving in town whom she selects as her first mark when she decides to make some money to get by while living in the airport's No Man's Land.
