When a woman from the slums marries a rich man who can’t pleasure her, she is driven to hunt for love outside the home
Carla is a beautiful girl. She was plucked from the obscurity of a Polish slum to be the wife of a wealthy man - a man who seemingly gives her everything a wife could want. Except the one thing that she needs most: the pleasure she burns for while he snores beside her, the passion that only a lover can give.
But adultery seems impossible until, suddenly, it happens. When she seduces a filling-station attendant, ruining her clothes in the grease of a mechanic’s floor, she starts to spin out of control. He is the first but not the last, as Carla learns that infidelity is no work at all.
