Three women from North America are holidaying on the idyllic, sun-drenched island of Haiti in the 1970s. Ellen (Charlotte Rampling) is an unmarried Boston schoolmistress who returns to Haiti every year for her summer holiday to be with the local Adonis, Legba (Ménothy Cesar). Sue (Louise Portal), a single, forty something Canadian also enjoys the attention and intimacy of a young local man. When Brenda (Karen Young), a divorcee from the Midwest arrives, tensions build as she seeks out Legba, with whom she had a sexual encounter years before. The background to the women's stories are told direct to camera, as is the story of Albert (Lys Ambrose), the head waiter at the resort where the women stay.
