Synopsis
Manipulated by an oppressive and jealous husband, Gloria runs away with her daughter and restarts her life far from men and the world. Encouraged by her friend Madeleine, Gloria agrees to meet Michel via a dating website. Something happens between them at first sight. Michel, a small time, bottom of the range crook is disturbed and Gloria falls hopelessly in love. Michel leaves out of fear but Gloria tracks him down and makes him promise never to leave her again. Desperate to save this love, she abandoned her daughter and decided to pose as Michel's sister so he could continue his little scams. But jealousy gradually blighted Gloria's life.
