Julien Villandrit is the owner of a textile factory whose manager, Henri Corrandi, is his childhood friend. Both love the same woman, Régine de Bettigny, who gives her hand to Villandrit. Mad with jealousy, Corradin will use all means to break up the couple: he does not hesitate to compromise Régine, to send Julien to prison for a crime he has not committed, to spread misfortune. But despite a long and painful separation, Julien and Régine will meet again, still bound by the same love.
