Set in the early 20th century, it's a story about a wealthy man named Romano (Mastroianni) and his encounter with a mysterious woman named Anna (Keller) in a hotel at a spa town. Romano is a wealthy and charming gentleman but he is bored with his life and his marriage to the beautiful and superficial Emma. He spends his time playing cards, flirting with women, and avoiding his wife's demands. One day, while he is waiting for Emma at the spa, he meets Anna, a married woman with a tragic past, who is in the spa with her husband.
