Hugues (Jean-Claude Carrière), a veterinarian looking for a large apartment, hires the services of a marriage agency to access this property, and incidentally find a wife. The agency introduces him to Jeanne (Anna Karina), an enigmatic young woman.
Back from their honeymoon, Hugues surrounds himself with a multitude of animals (reptiles, primates, insects, etc.) to conduct his research. Their presence is a source of concern for Jeanne. In this oppressive climate, the two beings begin to spy on each other. As they somehow manage to tame each other and then attach themselves to each other, an indefinable threat looms, keenly felt by the animals, a prelude to an unexpected outcome.
