Identification Of A Woman is about an Italian film director named Niccolo (Tomas Milian), who is out looking for a subject for his new film. In the course of his search for a subject, Niccolo finds, and falls in love with, a high-born, enigmatic young woman named Mavi (Daniela Silverio). In their 2-month affair, Niccolo receives veiled threats to drop Mavi. Plus, his sister, a successful gynaecologist, is mysteriously fired from her hospital.
About half-way through the film, Mavi disappears. Niccolo becomes obsessed with finding her again, but while searching for her, he slips into an affair with another woman, an actress named Ida (Christine Boisson). Ida, as chance may have it, becomes the key to the solution of Mavi's mystery.
