Stanislas, a suicidal poet and anarchist, enters her apartments with the intent of killing her. When he appears, wounded, fleeing the guards, she is struck by his resemblance to the late king and instead of having him arrested, she hides him. A singular passion grows between the sovereign and her assassin.
