On Capri, an Italian crew makes a German film of Homer's Odyssey; Fritz Lang directs with American money.

Against this backdrop, Javal's marriage to Camille, a young former typist, disintegrates. It opens with the couple talking in bed, she asking assurance that he finds her attractive. Later that day he introduces her to Prokosch, and, unawares, blunders unforgivably.
