Description: Marie is a prostitute who loves her work, giving herself with full intensity to all costumers.
A night she has an act of kindness and takes a homeless man to her apartment where she offers him a hot meal, a place to sleep and finally herself.
She falls in love with that man and uses her work to give him a proper life.
But as their relationship grows, he starts to feel unsettled by having to leave the house so she can work.
The larger apartment she buys solves nothing, and he goes around seducing a manicurist and convincing her to prostitute herself for him.
He ends up arrested for soliciting and at that point Marie must decide what she will do with her life.
