In 1936, the Popular Front and the Spanish war are causing agitation. Fiodor, a young general in the zarist army, a refugee in Paris with his Greek wife Arsinoé, are part of this tense atmosphere. While she sympathizes with her communist neighbours he makes secret trips and enjoys worrying those around him. He doesn't hide the fact that he is a spy but he won't say who for. White anticommunists, the young Soviet Union, the Nazis or all at the same time? Does he himself know, he, who loves his wife but who is willing to sacrifice her for the sake of a sordid plot?
