Melodrama of a young girl, Eva, who marries a richer, older man, but immediately discovers that he has no passion and is dull. Frustrated and bored she returns to her father's home in the country and finds love and satisfaction with a younger man, Adam, who is working on a nearby construction project. She sues for divorce, and the realisation by her husband that she has been unfaithful leads to tragic consequences. A saddened Eva leaves on her own, but ultimately the lovers are reunited.
