In the woods outside Paris, eminent surgeon Dr Génessier uses the hidden basement of his clinic to perform secret operations in a bid to reconstruct the badly disfigured face of his daughter.

Eventually the police get a lead and they assign Paulette, a young woman who has been caught shoplifting, to go along to the clinic as bait.
