Synposis:

The story is somewhat an autobiography of Marguerite Duras herself in her novel (L'amant). A young French girl meets a rich Chinese man on the boat down the Mekong River. The man is immediately attracted to her. She in turn does not hesitate long before offering the seducer her innocence. She tells him she wants nothing but his money. However, upon her return to France, she realizes that she has deliberately refused to face the truth.....
