Two brothers quarrel for the love of a woman. One of them falls ill and dies; the other one marries her. The couple relocates to Paris running away from his reproaching mother. Nevertheless, she writes them letters bringing up the dead brother as if he were alive. The couple‘s relationship becomes unsustainable. Finally, the mother announces that the dead brother, who is supposedly living with her, will travel to Paris. The couple separately decides to meet him. It has been so long since they‘ve lived with this third body in the midst of them.
