Séverine Serizy is a young and very beautiful woman fantasies masochistic enough individuals. She is married to dr. Pierre Serizy (Jean Sorel) that she likes to “beyond the pleasure” : it does indeed not to find pleasure with him, which frustrates them both. A friend of the couple, Mr. Henri Husson (Michel Piccoli), he speaks of a luxury brothel and confesses his desire for her. Unsatisfied sexually, Séverine begins secretly to work in prostitution only some of the afternoon from 14 to 17 hours, hence its nickname Belle de jour, before returning to the arms of her husband, who, happy, unsuspecting.

As, Séverine binds to Marcel (Pierre Clémenti), a young rebel, who makes him live the passion and excitement of his fantasies. The situation becomes more complicated when Séverine decides to leave the brothel with the agreement of Madame Anaïs, after having found that Marcel was becoming too demanding and jealous of her husband. Mr. Husson discovers her secret when he goes to the brothel, but refuses to finally sleep with her because he loved her, it was her virtue. One of the partners of the young loubard Marcel follows Séverine to her house and discovers her address. Marcel pays a visit to the young woman, and threatens to reveal his secret identity, but Séverine persuades him to leave.

Marcel, waiting outside as the husband of Severine returns to the house, shoot him three times before fleeing and being killed by the police. The husband of Severine survives this assassination attempt, but falls into a coma. The police did not identify the reason for the crime, but he received the visit of Mr. Husson after being released from the hospital, blind and in a wheelchair.

The film ends on a new fantasy of Séverine; this time, however, no sex. Her husband is in good health, and they kiss before looking out the window like in the opening scene.

A film director, Sebastian, arrives in Cochabamba to make a movie about the arrival of Christopher Columbus in the west Indies and on the enslavement of the Natives. He wants that the film shows the fate of indigenous peoples and the role played by their defenders Antonio de Montesinos and Bartolomé de Las Casas. His producer Costa has chosen Bolivia for reasons of cost.

The director chooses from among its extras Daniel in the role of Hatuey, chief of the Tainos. Daniel is also one of the leaders of the movement against the increase in the price of water. In fact, an american multinational, Bechtel, has won the market of the distribution of water.
