A young woman named Sophie is interviewed for a housekeeping position at the country estate of Catherine Lelievre and her family. Sophie is enigmatically succinct in her answers, but her references are highly complimentary, and she is immediately offered the job.

However , from the onset, it is evident that there is something odd about Sophie's behaviour. She has an instinctive, patent respomse of " I don't know" to most questions, even when the answer doesn't apply. She refuses to dust the books in the library, despite keeping the rest of the house impeccably clean. She prefers to wash the dishes by hand, instead of using the dishwasher.

When she is given an opportunity to take driving lessons, she claims to have poor vision and declines the offer. Georges Lelievre sends her to an optometrist for an eye examination, but she avoids the appointment, and sends the afternoon shopping around town.

One day she is left a note on the kitchen table, and the truth becomes evidents - Sophie cannot read. In an attempt to conceal her illiteracy from every one, she becomes increasingly withdrawn from her employers, and the deception and lies compound.

Inevitably, her relationship with an eccentric, interfering postal worker named Jeanne, a woman of dubious character , grows unnaturally close, and the relationship leads to an incomprehensible act.
