A sociologist researching a book interviews murderess Camille, who tells him the story of her life. Put in a reform school as a child for suspected patricide, and later transferred to an orphanage, she escaped and tricked a young man called Clovis into marrying her. After attempting to kill Clovis' mother, she fled to Paris, where she began an affair with a night-club singer. Camille has left a trail of destruction and deceit in her wake, which now threatens to engulf the sociologist.
Stanislas Previne, a young and naive sociologist, meets Camille Bliss, who is in prison, to interview her as research for his thesis entitles "Women Criminals". Camille is accused of having murdered her lover Arthur and her husband Clovis. She has an innocent air and Stanislas finds her enchanting as she tells him of her numerous schemes, but he's heading towards becoming her next victim!
