Querelle is a sailor on shore leave in Brest. After stabbing and killing his drug-smuggling partner following an argument he seeks shelter in a nearby brothel. There he befriends the predatory madam, Lysiane, who leads him into his first homosexual encounter. From then on Querelle embarks upon a voyage of highly charged and sometimes violent sexual self-discovery that will transform him from the man he once was.
