À Paris, au cours de l'été 1957, en dépit de difficultés matérielles, un groupe de jeunes gens se prépare à monter Périclès, prince de Tyr, de Shakespeare. Mais les répétitions sont troublées par divers événements. Anne, venue rejoindre son frère Pierre, perturbe le groupe en flirtant avec l'un des garçons. Dans le même temps, Philip, un Américain victime du maccarthysme, suscite l'angoisse au sein de la troupe en évoquant le complot qui a entraîné le suicide d'un compositeur espagnol. 

Paris, the Summer of 1957.  Anne Goupil, a student of literature, is taken to a party by her brother Pierre.  The guests at the party include Philip Kaufman, an expat American escaping McCarthyism and Gerard Lenz, a theatre director, who's brought along a mysterious woman by the name of Terry as his date.  The main topic of conversation at the party is the apparent suicide of their friend Juan, a Spanish activist, who had recently broken up with Terry.  Philip tells Anne, that the forces that killed Juan will soon do the same thing to Gerard.  Gerard, for his part, is trying to produce Shakespeare's "Pericles", but has no financial backing to do so.  Anne takes a part in the play to help out Gerard ... and to discover the truth about Juan's death.

DVD-R is in French with switchable English subtitles.  Approx. 135 mins.
